Please join us in supervising the 7th and 8th grade students as they train for the annual Positive Direction 3K/5K run. The Positive Direction run is a little later this year on May 29. We will start training off campus on Monday, April 13.
The run conditioning requires 6-9 volunteers for each 7th and 8th grade gym class from April 13 to May 22. That’s over 60 volunteers per week! So, whether you are already volunteering on a Positive Direction activity or not, we need your help to make our conditioning run smoothly and safely! Sign up for one day or several days…all help is appreciated!
By now, you should have received and returned to Mr. Boyle a permission slip regarding run conditioning during gym class. Soon, run conditioning will begin a running route down Ravine Drive through the cul-de-sacs to Harroun Road and back. On a day that the whole grade runs together, they run down Main Street to Convent to Silica and back. There are stations along these routes where we need parent volunteers for each class to watch for cars at driveways, crossing streets and cheering them on!
This is a one hour commitment from a volunteer. On your day to volunteer, come into the middle school to the hall outside of the gym. Posted on the wall will be the route the kids are running that day. Check your name off from the sheet posted and find the location assigned to you on the map. You can walk or drive to that spot and stay until all kids have passed going out and coming back on the route. Your responsibility is to either hold back cars while kids are passing the driveway or street or to have kids stop.
Please check your calendars to see if you can help … if you are able, we will be using Sign up Genius so look for this information coming soon! The schedule should be the same each week, as follows: Mondays- 7JJ 8:45-9:30, 7AM 9:30-10:15, 7MJ 10:15-11 and ALL 8th grade 1:45-2:30. Wednesdays- 8L 12:15-1, 8B 1-1:45, 8H 1:45-2:30. Fridays- All 7th grade 10:30-11:15.
There will also be a space to sign up for snacks towards the end of training. The kids love having popsicles at the end of the run! If you can’t come for the run, dropping off popsicles ahead of time is much appreciated!!!
Please contact me with any questions. Thank you for all of your help!
