Girls and boys at School No. 23 have been busy. The "Girls on the Run" team participated in the GOTR 5K run at MCC. They spent several weeks training and learning skills to be great people. On their training run a week before the race, the girls ran through the neighborhood with garbage bags and cleaned up trash on the street. Neighbors thanked them along the way! School 23 also showcased its first Boys' Running Club. With the help of parents and staff members, the boys trained for several weeks so they could run in Lilac Festival 5K. The boys hosted a car wash to raise funds for their entry fees. They also received a great deal of help from neighbors, the PTA, Fleet Feet and the organizers of the Lilac 5K.
