Come Watch our Cubs Run a 2K!!

May 5th, 2016 The FUN starts at 2:00!!

Washington Elementary’s Healthy Foods and Exercise Committee has some exciting news to share with you! As you may know, we started an after-school program this year called "Cubs on the Run" for 3rd – 6th graders. To celebrate all our hard work and accomplishments, we are going to have all WES children participate in an outdoor assembly on May 5th (rain date May 19th, ) starting at 2:00 p.m. Cubs will lead warm-up exercises and a short cardio activity on the playground. After we have everyone’s heart racing a little, our Cubs will run the 2-K while their peers cheer them on. Children will see that running can be lots of fun! Families are welcome to come and join in on the fun of cheering on our Cubs!

Here's where we need your help! We need volunteers to assist with the following:

  • Set up water stations, cones for track, etc. (set up will start @ 9:00 a.m.)
  • Use a timer for the Cubs' run
  • Recording of times given by timer
  • Hand out popsicle sticks to runners
  • Score table (need 8 volunteers)
  • Course Marshalls (8 - 10 volunteers)
  • Water station
  • Clean up (8 - 10 volunteers)
  • Crowd control (8 - 10 volunteers)

If you have your clearances and would like to assist us in our first-ever 2K run here at WES, please email Julee Carns at Give her the following information: Your name and what you would like to help with from the list above. Except for set-up volunteers, we are asking that you arrive at WES by 1:15.

We hope to see you May 5th!!
