Everything You Need to Know About 1st Grade!!!

Mark your calendars! 1st Grade Parent Night is this coming Thursday, September 10th, 5:30-6:15. You will meet in your child's first grade classroom and learn all about the procedures and expectations for first grade. Your child's teacher will share valuable information about reading and math goals for the year, grading, and school wide information.

This is a time for parents to receive information about your first grader’s year and to ask the teacher questions. If possible, no children.

The 16th Annual Run in the Dark, benefiting Community Storehouse, is scheduled this year for September 19, 2015 at Alliance Town Center's Bluestem Park.

More than 3,000 runners participated in the 2014 Run. Each year, more runners join the event, participating in the one-mile fun run and 5K and 10K races.

Whether you choose to become a sponsor, volunteer your time, or put together a team to run, you are helping at-risk children in the greater Keller community. All proceeds from the event go back to children in our area, providing essential services to prevent hunger and provide educational support, resources, and stability.

The schedule for this year's event is:

4 p.m. - Registration/Packet Pick-up
5:30 p.m. - Food Trucks On Site
7 p.m. - 1 Mile Fun Run
7:45 p.m. - 5K/10K Start
9 p.m. - Awards

Discounted rates are available to friends and families who sign up with their child’s school! To sign up and receive a discount for Run in the Dark, choose to register under Schools/Storehouse Cup. (http://www.runinthedarkdfw.com/2015-waiver-form/) This will take you to a form where you can sign up to run with your child’s school campus and receive a discounted rate. Not only do you receive a discount, but your t-shirts and bibs will be delivered directly to your child's campus, making it easier for you!

The campus with the most runners will win the coveted “Storehouse Cup Trophy.” This will be the eighth year for Community Storehouse to award the trophy to the school with the highest participation. There will be two trophies awarded: one for Elementary/Intermediate and one for Middle/High Schools. A school team consists of children and adults who register under their school’s name. Also, a free gift is included for all who register in the 10K/5K or 1 Mile Fun Run!

Entries must be received by Friday, September 11 to be counted toward the school competition. If your school has at least 50 runners, the Community Storehouse will award your school with a special gift of appreciation.

Join with the Community Storehouse and help make this event a success!
