The inaugural season of Girls on the Run, led by Randi Johnson, had 50 girls participate in the program with over 40 of them completing two 5K run/walks. They met 2 times a week for 10 weeks learning skills to handle typical issues they might encounter at their age and exercise. Building stamina over 10 weeks, they participated May 24 in a 5K at Water Works Park with a running buddy. The girls also participated in Community Impact Project Day. Team 1 made toys for the animals at Clarke County Animal Shelter. Teams 2 and 3 made cupcakes and decorated cookies for Clarke teachers and staff. Thanks to Randi Johnson for all her hard work on this program and to all the girls who participated!
Kindergarten round up will be Tuesday, May 29. Students will attend either a morning or afternoon session.

Clarke Elementary students have the opportunity to share with others in our community this holiday season. Students may bring a food or personal care item to donate to our local food pantry here in Osceola. Canned fruits or vegetables, jars of peanut butter, boxed foods or personal care items like bars of soap or toothpaste are just a few examples that would all help towards meeting the needs of others. Donations will begin December 4th and continue through December 15th. Let’s try to surpass our goal of 1,213 items that we collected last year!
Together, our generosity can make a difference!
