RUNNING CLUB EXTENDED
Because Running Club has been disrupted a few times by poor weather, we have decided to extend this popular event by ONE MORE WEEK. The final day of Running Club will be Friday, November 6th.

Special thanks to the wonderful parent who volunteer daily to sign running forms. We couldn’t do it without you!
