HELP WANTED! Recess Running Club to Begin

Parent volunteers are needed during the lunch recess. Students will have the opportunity to walk, jog, or run laps around a designated course again in April and May provided we have adult volunteers. After each finished lap, an adult volunteer is needed to hand the student(s) a clothespin to clip onto his/her shirt. When the student decides he/she is finished, he/she returns the clothespin(s) to the volunteer. The number of clothespins is tallied beside the student’s name on a checklist and therefore, the number of laps has easily been counted. Students will have the opportunity to earn small incentives. We are hoping to teach students that choosing exercise in their free time can be rewarding and the students really do seem to LOVE it. The more volunteers we have, the more frequently the students can have this opportunity.
