Girls on The Run! Grades 3-5
Girls on The Run at Rankin Elementary
At the Rankin Girls on the Run we inspire girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Over the course of the ten-week program, girls in 3rd-5th grade develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K event.
We will have a team of 15 girls at Rankin. Spots are first come first serve! We have 14 spots still open on the team. Girls on the run also offers scholarships to help with the cost of the program. If you are interested there is a link on the Girls On The Run Flathead Valley webpage. See the below links for the registration form as well as the Flathead Valley website.
Our season will start in the first week of March. We will meet every Tuesday and Thursday right after school from 3:30-5:00.
Looking forward to seeing the girls in March!

See What's coming home on March 4th--Original Works!
Dear Rankin Families,
We are excited to announce that Rankin Elementary PTO has teamed up with Original Works to offer an exciting art-based program at our school. Through this program, you will have the opportunity to purchase a variety of products featuring your child’s very own artwork, while also supporting the educational opportunities of the local school community.
On Wednesday March 4th, your student will come home with a packet of art projects that you will have the option to be made into wonderful keepsakes. Original Works will take your child’s artwork and reproduce it onto a variety of high quality products. Each classroom has spent the year creating at least three pieces of artwork done by your child and you will have an opportunity to purchase items with their amazing work on them! These range from magnets, mugs and mouse pads, to tiles, t- shirts, note cards and many other products. Folders with your child’s artwork and order forms will be sent home on March 4th. Follow the instructions in packet and return packets with artwork and orders.
Orders with payment are due March 16th @ 3pm. No exceptions! Please contact PTO parent Brittany Rech at firstname.lastname@example.org or 890-4225
