We are excited to announce the return of our morning Wildcat Run/Walk Club beginning on Monday, Sept 28th. Students are invited to walk or run labs on the field by the covered area from 7:30-7:45 (weather permitting) before eating breakfast and/or heading to class. This is a great opportunity for students to get exercise and socialize with their friends. They can earn a wildcat paw charm for each five miles they run/walk. Helping to supervise the Run/Walk club is a great way to volunteer. Please contact the school office if you can help tally students’ laps from 7:30-7:45 on
