Getting Fitter

We have been enjoying the nice weather being able to get outside most days for Phy Ed.  The students have been working hard getting ready for the MILE run (grades 1-5) and the 1/2 MILE run (kinders).  We will probably be running those the week of Sept. 23rd during class.  For some of the younger student, learing new games is fun and exciting.  They have also been doing some fitness stations and fitness testing as well as building some endurance for some to the fitness components.  Our school will once again be invited to participate in the Faribault Cross Country Mile Run Tuesday, October 1st (grades 1-5).  I will get the printed flyer sent home with the students as soon as I receive it.  This is a fun event that we traditionally have been well represented by our outstanding runners and participation numbers.  It is held at North Alexander Park near the Cannon River, opposite the football field.  Last year we had at least 1 runner finish in the top 3 of all the age divisions except one, that's impressive.  The older students start at 4:00 and then the younger ones start closer to 4:40.  Look for for more details here in the near future.
