Running Club Update

December, 2017

Did you know that the Lafayette Leopards Running Club works with three national programs to keep our students active during lunch recess? These programs, Marathon Kids, Fuel Up to Play 60 and Action for Healthy Kids provide funds, training and ideas to keep our kids active. Marathon Kids, a national program sponsored by Nike, seeks to keep kids moving with a goal of running 4 marathons in one year! Fuel Up to Play 60 is a nutrition and physical activity program, which partners with the NFL and National Dairy Council to encourage kids to create a healthy life. Action for Healthy Kids’ vision is for every student to be healthy, active and ready to learn. By partnering with these established programs, the Running Club seeks to keep our students healthy and moving! The students set goals, run/walk to achieve these goals, while laying the groundwork for a healthy and active life. Running Club is held every Tuesday and Thursday during lunch recess on the playground. Come join us!

Annie this Thursday at 7pm by Sing Out Seattle

Join us for a free show this Thursday at Lafayette’s Theater in the Cafeteria.  You will see the students who participated in the enrichment session this fall for Sing Out Seattle.  The show starts at 7pm.  If you can help out with chair setup or makeup and getting kids ready for the performance that would be great!  Volunteers please plan to arrive at 6:15pm.

 

Thanks!
