Welcome to the 2018-19 Carrillo Elementary Running Club! Our theme this year is American Safari. We are setting a goal to cross the country, visiting all 50 states and learning about our state animals. We want to encourage a love of running and hope that our Running Club helps students learn about goal-setting, healthy habits, self-motivation, and a sense of pride while having fun on the track.
Students can run every day before school (8:15-8:45am) and during their recess time. They can run as much or as little as they choose. They can earn foot charms for their running necklaces, footprints to decorate and display around the school, and new animal charms each month as we run through different states. They can even earn personalized certificates, t-shirts, medals, and trophies when they hit certain milestones.
The Junior Colts Running Club (Kindergarten) is similar to Grades 1-5, but running times are determined by each kindergarten teacher.
If you have any questions, please reach out to us. We can’t wait to see your kids on the track!
