2) Girls On the Run is back! GOTR is a physical activity based development program for girls in 3rd-5th grades. It teaches life skills through dynamic interactive lessons and running games. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness. Starting the week of March 2nd, the team will meet every Wednesday and Friday from 8-9am. The program culminates in a celebratory 5k run on May 17th at the Westfield Montgomery Mall. The program costs $160 and includes 20 lessons, a T-shirt, water bottle, entry into the 5k, a 5k medal, and more! (Financial scholarships available.) Registration for returning participants begins on February 3rd at 9am on http://www.girlsontherunofmoco.org/register/. Registration opens for new participants on February 10th at 9am (same URL). If you have any questions, please contact Nicole Connell at nbconnell@verizon.net.
3) On February 18th our school will be holding our 7th annual Jump Rope for Heart event to raise funds for the American Heart Association. Last year we raised over $15,000! We were one of the top schools in the area. Over the last 6 years, we have raised over $65,000 for the AHA! Students will participate in this event during their Physical Education (PE), Art, Music, or Media time on that Friday. Students will be participating in many jumping activities to celebrate Heart Health Month and to acknowledge our school’s contributions to the American Heart Association! You will receive a letter in your child’s folder this week. Raising money online is an easy and fun way for your child to contribute. The website is http://www.heart.org/jump and then choose Olney ES. Please contact Ms. Morse with any questions.
Have a great night,
