Skate Night Copy
Jetstars really know how to let the good times roll! Over $900 was raised at our first Skate Night. Another Skate Night will take place in the Spring. A special thanks to event chair Julie Samuel for organizing this event.
Calling all room parents and volunteers! Join us at 8 a.m. on Tuesday August 29 to learn everything you need to know about volunteering at Gemini.
Come join the fun at Morning Mile on Gemini’s South Field every day from 7:15 - 7:45. Morning Mile is free and all students in the school are signed up. Parents and siblings are welcome but drop off is fine too! No need to be on time, just show up anytime before the first bell.
5 laps around the field is a mile and for every 5 miles that are completed (running or walking), the students earn shoe charms. Once they earn 100 miles they earn a shirt and a celebratory lap.
Because of Gemini’s success in the Running Zone Race Series last year, we have decided to participate in the 2023-2024 Race Series. The top school prizes are $1,000 for 1st place, $500 for second place and $250 for 3rd place. For every race that is participated in, each student will get credit for 25 laps (straws) and a fun charm for their Morning Mile necklace. Please come out and support Morning Mile! Signing up for a race is also a great way to get motivated to make it to the field each morning plus they are super fun!
The next race in the series is the Ghostly Gecko 5K on October 28. Sign up here and select Gemini Elementary as your team. https://runsignup.com/Race/FL/Melbourne/GhostlyGecko5K
