     Monthly Marathon 

     

    During the last week of each month every 2nd & 3rd grade Physical Education class will take part in a “marathon run.”  

     

    How we do it:  We begin in September with the “3 Minute Marathon.”  Students attempt to jog for 3 continuous minutes (without walking) to become members of September’s 3 Minute Marathon Club.  Students jog at their own pace.  If a student drops out, he/she will continue to participate as a walker. 

     

    Sign In, Please!  Successful students will receive a sneaker that will be displayed throughout the school year.  If a student reaches the specified marathon time each month, they receive a sticker to place on their sneaker.  The sneaker is awarded to the runner the first time they complete the monthly marathon time.
