The PTSA Eagles Marathon runs October through November.  The event  takes place during lunch recesses Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. All students K-5 as well as teachers, staff and parents are invited to participate!

 

How It Works:

All students have the opportunity to run, skip, hop, just move around the designated track during lunch recess as they work to achieve a marathon goal! Students can commit to accumulating 26.2 miles or simply run and track their miles as a healthy, educational and fun experience with classmates.  The goal of the Eagles Marathon is to encourage students to be active, lead a healthy lifestyle and have fun!  As a side benefit, Peter Kirk teachers tell us the kids are more focused and better able to learn after they’ve run!

 

Rewards and Recognition:

For each mile completed, students receive a toe token. Students have fun and feel proud adding weekly mileage toe tokens to their marathon chain. Upon completion of the full marathon, each finisher gets their picture taken and the first boy & girl to finish in each grade get a special prize.

 

We Need Your Help!

Parent volunteers are needed daily to help punch lap cards as students complete each lap. This is a fantastic volunteer opportunity for parents who are able to break away occasionally from the workplace during lunchtime.
