Running Buddies/Contribution to Celebration

Please click here to see if you have let us know who your kiddo is running with. If you see a blank next to your child's name please reply back to either Coach Hanson or Coach Cogan. We would love to have this chart complete and ready ASAP. Thank you!

Our 5K and Celebration are fast approaching. We are asking families of our girls on the run to donate $5 toward supplies for the celebration, please make contribution if you haven't done so already! Thanks so much!

Letter to Parents/Guardians...

Dear Parent/Guardian,

In our lesson, the girl’s explore different ways bullying can occur—physical, verbal and emotional. We also discuss tactics to use when being bullied or witnessing someone else being bullied. We encourage the “SBLR Strategy” from last week’s lesson as an effective way to respond to bullying.

In Thursday's lesson, we will take time to celebrate all the unique and special gifts we have along with honoring our friendships. We play a fun game that allows the girls express the different strengths and talents they love most about one another. Next time will be our last practice before the final celebration. Stay tuned!

Talk with your Girl on the Run...

Talk with your Girl on the Run…

1. What are some of the words the girls said about YOU?

2. Let’s enthusiastically shout words to each other that express what we love about one another!

3. Why is it important to treat others the way you want to be treated?

4. If someone is bullying you by spreading a rumor about you, what would you do? (SBLR strategy, tell an adult)
