The Eagles Marathon begins Thursday, October 2nd. This is a new PTSA sponsored program where students will have the opportunity to run (or walk, skip, hop, etc.) around a .2 mile course during Lunch Recess as they work to achieve a healthy Eagles Marathon goal of 26.2 miles over 6 weeks.

All students will receive a lap punchcard to track their miles and a "toe token" for each mile completed. Prizes will be given out for the first boy and girl in each grade to complete 26.2 miles, and for the class with the highest percentage of students who complete the marathon.

Parent volunteers are needed during Lunch Recesses between Oct 2nd - Nov 25th to punch student lap counters. You may sign-up for a single Lunch Recess (30min) or stay for the combined Lunch Recesses (1hr). Sign up here Eagles Marathon Volunteers Any & all help is greatly appreciated!
