Running Club Congratulates Marathon Finishers and Classes for Highest Participation
Cherry Crest tested our very first Recess Running Club this year and wants to congratulate the 461 runners who completed a collective total of 2,445.8 miles (12,229 laps) in the short 6.5 weeks!  Wow!
Big shout-outs to our 5 Marathon Finishers!
James Du 34.0 miles
Trevor Lwin 33.0 miles
Brianna McCormick 30.2 miles
Ray Ge 27.4 miles
Stanley Song 26.2 miles
Two classes tied for the most participation and win an extra virtual recess!
Ms. Cody (K) 100%
Ms. Gibbs (2nd) 100%
Finally, a huge thank you to the 27 amazing parent volunteers who helped out at the track through rain, wind, snow, and hail to make this program happen this year.  We couldn’t have done it without you.  We look forward to bringing this back when it’s safe to do so in the new school-year.
In the meantime, stay active and keep running, walking, skipping, and dancing this summer!
Running Club is coming in January, thanks to GO! Grant from AMPED!
We are proud to announce that Cherry Crest was one of the fewer than 100 schools in the US chosen to receive the GO! Grant this year from AMPED, a not-for-profit school-based program which aims to amplify education through daily physical activity.
This enables us to be able to launch our very first recess running club at Cherry Crest, beginning Tuesday, January 14, 2020!
This FREE club will be offered every day at lunch recess (except Wednesdays) at the Cherry Crest track.  This is a completely optional activity and students are welcome to join at any time and run or walk as much or as little as they wish!  For every 5K completed, students will earn a running charm which they can keep!  Additional charms and prizes will be awarded at the milestones of half-marathon (13.1 miles) and marathon (26.2 miles).
Join us!
1.  Sign up your runner online so we can get your student’s scan card ready.  Alternatively, drop off a completed paper sign-up form at the front office.
2.  Volunteers, sign up to help with barcode scanning.  Come every day or choose your favorite days, times and classes!  Each slot is just 30 minutes, pick a few times or take them all!  Fridays are Prize Days and that’s when extra hands are especially appreciated.

Parents and teachers are also welcome to run!

Thank you for supporting the Running Club!

Girls on the Run

Is your daughter ready to take on a fun challenge?  Have her join us for 10 awesome weeks in the Girls on the Run program!  Girls on the Run is an after school program that empowers 3rd-5th grade girls to make new friends, build upon strengths, and make a difference in the community.  Your daughter will finish the season by completing in a non-competitive 5K with other amazing girls!

When: Twice a week for 90 minutes from March 2 to May 18 after school
Where: Cherry Crest School
Who: Open to any 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade girl

Space is limited, so please make sure to register your daughter by January 24th.  Girls who are registered between January 10th through January 24th will be entered into a lottery for the opportunity to participate in Girls on the Run.

DO YOU want to get involved in Girls on the Run too?  We need parent coaches! When you volunteer as a Girls on the Run coach, your daughter is guaranteed a spot in the program.  You can read more about being a parent coach for Girls on the Run here.  Coach registration is due by January 17th.

Please contact Patricia Gilbert at if you have any questions.
