Run with it

A teacher and student running in the Girls Running ClubWhen Monterey Elementary announced plans for a new Girls Running Club, staff expected a dozen or more students.  Teachers were shocked when 38 girls showed up for the first outing!

The Monterey Girls Running Club meets weekly after school.  The goal is to teach students how to live a healthy life-style.  They will also learn how to stay safe and build confidence along the way. 

A shout out to the teachers who are volunteering their time to mentor these students.  Principal Strother says Monterey may include boys later this school year.

In the meantime, lace up your shoes girls and drink lots of water!
