100 Mile Running Club
Last Friday, Mr. Federbusch’s 5th grade students mapped out a new running course for our 100 Mile Running Club. The new course has the students running longer laps but fewer of them to equal a mile. Prizes are awarded to students when they reach 25, 50, 75 and 100-mile marks. The running club is available to every student thirty minutes before school begins. Thank you, students, for creating a new course!
