Kids Marathon of Catawba County
Our school is participating in the Kids Marathon for the 9th year in a row!
We won the event for 5 straight years and we recently came in second and third place.
We would love to be #1 again and win $2,500 for our school's PE dept!
The Kids Marathon is an ongoing "race" from now until May 2nd. Students who sign up will receive a log sheet to log their miles each day or every other day they have PE.
The goal is for students to complete a full marathon (26.2 miles) by May 2nd.
Once your child signs up we will provide them with a pedometer during PE class.
The pedometer will count the number of steps that s/he takes during class.
The steps will then be converted to miles and we will send home a slip of paper
with your child so they can fill it in on their log sheet.
On Saturday, May 2nd at the Fairgrounds in Hickory the final mile will take place.
The school with the highest percentage of student participation on Saturday, May 2nd
will take home first place (a trophy and $2,500)!!
In order to do that we need as many students participating as possible.
This is the easiest way for your child to help our school earn $2,500 for new and updated PE equipment... PLUS your child is being physically active!!
