    Gator Spotlight: RUN CLUB SUCCESS

    We're so proud of the 321 students who participated in Run Club this year. We loved seeing you out on the "blue line" earning those miles!

    This year, our 

    • TK ran 16 miles
    • Kindergarteners ran 146 miles
    • 3rd graders ran 192 miles
    • 5th graders ran 218 miles
    • 4th graders ran 224 miles
    • 2nd graders ran 301 miles
    • and 1st graders ran 314 miles!

    That means that as a school, you ran over 1,400 miles together this year!

    This year, the Golden Sneaker award for the top mileage achieved by any student goes to someone who really "showed up" for Run Club day after day, week after week. She was absolutely tenacious about her mileage and ultimately achieved 47.63 miles! That runner is none other than Sarah from Mrs. Heck's class. Sarah, you absolutely rocked Run Club this year!

    We had hoped to keep running with all of you through spring and into June, but while we cannot meet you at the "blue line" right now, we hope you're still getting out to run.  Congratulations, and a word from Mrs. Fanton:
