Running for Gold
- Angela Beebe, Longwood Elementary School
- Physical Activity Participation
Our K-5 students run in our mile club every Wednesday. The coaches keep track of students' individual miles and grade levels. The mileage charts are posted outside the PE doors for students to see how their grade is doing. Also, in May we will have our first Read/Run Marathon. Students from kindergarten through fifth grade signed up to read 26 books and run 26 miles. Students read and ran at home and in class. On May 13 we will have our 50 contestants run their last mile at Field Day. Students will receive a medal and t-shirt.
