Monte Vista Elementary is a proud supporter of the Girls on the Run foundation. Their mission is to, “inspire girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident using a fun experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.” The ten week course is available to girls in grades 3-5. Participants take part in lessons that promote positive emotional, social, mental and physical development. At the end of the ten week course, the girls participate in a 5k. Each girl has a buddy to run with, promoting the idea that we are stronger when we work together. Thank you to the parents who volunteer, and help make this program an exciting and joyful place to be! If you are interested in participating, please see the link below.
