Middle School Chess Club
Girls on the run!
Our school has been approved for Girls on the Run teams! GOTR is a 30 year old non-profit organization that works to inspire joyful, confident and healthy girls in grades 3-5 and 6-8. It is a 10 week program with an easy to follow curriculum on topics such as avoiding peer pressure, making good friendships, eating healthy, and much more with games, physical activities and running. The girls are both learning new skills and training for a GOTR 5K at the end of the season. Girls in grades 3-5 meet twice a week for 90 minutes and middle school girls meet once a week for 90 minutes. The cost is $185 per girl, but no girl is turned away due to funding and the new Riverside/San Bernardino County office has scholarships ready for girls in our area.
The elementary team works best with 4 volunteer coaches so that the volunteer commitment is once a week. The middle school team will work well with only 2 volunteer coaches. This is an opportunity for both staff and parents. I am ready and willing to coach again or simply serve as site liaison. I coached scholarship teams in Atlanta for 5 years! My teams received all necessary supplies from snacks to new running shoes! It is one of the most beautiful programs I have ever experienced! Please share with our community!
