The Healthy Kids Running Series is a five week running program in the spring and fall for kids from Pre-K to 8th grade. Each Race Series takes place once a week and offers age appropriate running events including the 50 yard dash, the 1/4 mile, the 1/2 mile and the one mile run. Kids compete each week of the Series for a chance to earn points and at the end of the Series the top boy and girl with the most points in their respective age division receive a trophy. It doesn’t matter how fast or slow you run because all participants receive a medal and gift bag for their achievements courtesy of our sponsors! Join us as we encourage kids to adopt a healthy and active lifestyle, help increase their self-esteem, and make new friends!
On Thursday, May 12th, the 5th grade will present our annual 5th Grade Dinner Theater. The theme for the show this year is “A Rainbow of Sound.” The dinner theater coincides with the Middle School ALIVE dinner, as middle school staff members serve the free-will donation dinner to the public from 4:30-6:00 p.m. The 5th grade will then present their concert at 6:30 p.m. with songs about various colors. It’s sure to be a fun night!
The middle school Pop Concerts are on Tuesday, May 17th. The 6th grade will perform at 4:30 p.m., 7th grade at 5:45 p.m., and the 8th grade and jazz band will perform at 7:00 p.m. All concerts will be held in the middle school multipurpose room.
