Blake Boruff sunk a 100 point shot in Trashcan Baseball this week.   Students had fun working on catching, throwing, and running skills as we get "FIRED UP" for opening day!


Marathon Kids T-Shirts are Here!

We had 130 kids finish the Marathon Kids Program so far.  They completed 26.2 miles over the course of 6 months.  They also committed to eating 5 fruits and or veggies in a day for at least 26 days.  Pictured below is the T-Shirt.  Listed on the back are the sponsors that bring this program to thousands of schools free of charge.  You can support this program by supporting these businesses.
