Riddle Runs

Riddle PTA and the physical education teachers started a Riddle Runs program in the fall to promote a healthy lifestyle. Twice a week out on the field, parents and teachers would set up our check-in station and running course. Students would check in each day and parent volunteers would track each student's progress. Students could walk with friends or their parents, run by themselves, or work as a team together. In the gym, we had a lap tracker so students could see their progress each week.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

This was a team effort to set up and take down banners, lap tracking stations, music, track laps, and update student progress. Riddle's PTA organized parent volunteers to make the running program a great success. Students encouraged their friends to join, and Riddle Runs grew in student participation each week.
