It is time to get ready for our Spring Running Club and Annual Fun Run!
2019 Important Dates to Know:
- Running Club starts Thursday, May 2nd and the last day is Monday, June 10th.
- The Annual Rattlesnake Fun Run/Walk will take place Tuesday, JUNE 11th 2019 12:55 PM-2:30 PM
Rattlesnake Running Club Information:
The running club meets at two different times during the week: Monday and Thursday
mornings, and Tuesdays during afternoon recess.
Morning Running club meets at 8:00 am on Monday and Thursday mornings on the north side of the building. All Rattlesnake students are invited to join, but Kindergartners need to bring a parent to participate in morning running club. In the event of bad weather, running club may be cancelled the evening before, and this will be announced via all school Connect5 email. We run the same loop gradually working our way up in distance. Please note that if your child rides the bus or eats breakfast at school they will arrive too late to participate in the morning run.
Afternoon recess running club meets on Tuesdays in the main playground field. Kindergarten through 3rd grade recess runners will stay on school property, 4th and 5th
graders will be able to run off campus with our running club volunteers.
Fun Run Information:
We are encouraging runners to show school spirit by wearing green and yellow for the run. There will be a 1-mile out and back for kindergartners, walkers, and anyone not up for 2 miles. This route will take you through the neighborhood, across the creek, up the hill, and back. There is also a 2-mile loop open to 1st-5th graders. This loop will take you through the neighborhoods, across the creek, up the hill and around the PEAS farm loop. Both the 1-mile and the 2-mile course will end on the playground. It is an uphill finish! Everyone crosses the same finish line. This is not a timed event. Your child will need to decide prior to the start of the Fun Run, which route they would like to run. We are doing this strictly for fun. If your child wants to know their time we encourage them to wear a watch and time themselves.
We will hold the run rain or shine, so please send your child to school wearing proper running shoes (no flip flops or open toe shoes) and dressed for the weather. The runners will congregate and play/snack on the playground after their run. If you are taking your child home after the run please let your teacher know. We are in still in NEED of lots of volunteers to make this event happen. If you are able to donate fruit please send to school with your child the morning of June 11th and they can take it to the FCC.
Thank you to all the volunteers who have already signed up to help! We still need more help. You can sign up HERE.
If you do not want your child to participate in the fun run, please inform your child’s teacher before Friday, June 7th.
VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED!:
We need parent helpers on Monday & Thursday mornings from 8:00-8:25am, Tuesday recess 2:00-2:30pm, and before, during, and after the Fun Run itself on June 11th (volunteers needed anytime between 8:15am-2:30pm on June 11th).
