For those of you who are unfamiliar with JUST RUN, it is a FREE, multifaceted youth fitness program developed by the Big Sur Marathon Foundation. It not only promotes exercise and the sport of running but also good citizenship and healthy eating! The 5k race is held in Fairport Harbor in May and draws thousands of visitors!

I will make registration packets available to students starting Monday Feb 3, 2020 but you can also access all the required information by clicking on the link below.
ALSO!! Great news - our local Lake County Chapter of JUST RUN has officially obtained non-profit status! That means more fundraising opportunities and program expansion. If you or someone you know would like to DONATE to this awesome organization, I will be posting about how to do that very soon!

McKinley second grade students held their annual "Living Museum" in celebration of the end of their Unit of Inquiry on Where We Are in Place & Time. As you can see the students dressed as the significant person they researched. They did an amazing job imitating statues until museum visitors "pushed their buttons" for the presentation. It was a wonderful day full of visits from Alexander Graham Bell, Sacajawea, Jane Goodall, Babe Ruth, Georgia O'Keeffe, Abraham Lincoln, Nikola Tesla and many more.
