Girls on the Run

Girls on the runLafayette is launching a Girls on the Run Program in March, and we are looking for a few volunteer coaches! Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-5th grade.

Do coaches have to be runners?
Not a runner? Not a problem! Girls on the Run is for anyone looking to inspire our girls to be healthier, more confident, and empowered! This is much more than a running program.

When is the program and how long are practices?
The Girls on the Run season runs from March until May. The girls practice Mondays and Thursdays from 2:30-3:45pm at Lafayette Elementary. As a coach, this means between 5-6 hours per week, including prep time, practice time, and time for communication with families and GOTR staff.

Kindergarten Team Needs Volunteers for “Jump Start”

The Kindergarten team is looking for volunteers to help out with the “Kindergarten Jump Start” program this fall.

Jump Start volunteers will help with learning stations during the five day program (August 18th – 22nd). The time commitment is 9-11:45am each day. Volunteers will follow prepared plans and support the students as they engage in learning. Some stations will also involve simple note-taking. The stations that need volunteers include:

  • Fine Motor (coloring, cutting, drawing)
  • Math (counting, shape designs, patterns)
  • Literacy (listening to stories and looking at books)

If you enjoy helping children learn and build confidence, please consider volunteering. Contact Mr. Bell to volunteer or if you have questions.
