Give a HOOT! Olmsted 64 Owls Running Club

In conjunction with the 100 Mile Club and student initiated Fitness Club, Buffalo Public School Olmsted 64 began a Running Club for 3rd and 4th graders. Physical Education teacher Jane Orcholski and social worker MaryJo Gervase, along with parent volunteers, took on the task of getting the kids in shape for our local Kids Run as our end of season celebration activity!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Teachers, parent volunteers, and students work together to run an outside route that includes our local nearby Frederick Law Olmsted designed Delaware Park. It includes a loop around beautiful Hoyt Lake, where teachers run with groups at various speeds and then double back to encourage those who may need an extra push along the way!
