Skyridge Trekkers Club

  • Mrs. Gallo is leading the Morning Trekkers Club. All students in Grades 1-5 are invited to participate between 7:35-7:50 AM on the playground/field area. Research shows that exercise optimizes learning by improving alertness, attention, and motivation. This is a great opportunity to get physical activity before starting the school day.
  • Lunchtime Trekkers had a great Fall 2021! We need more volunteers to keep the program going strong in 2022. Time commitment is one Friday lunch recess (11:00-1:00) per month. We’ll show you how to do it and provide all supplies. Volunteers need to have their District clearance. Students have been really engaged with the program – let’s keep it going! Contact Theresa with questions: 415.272.3942.
