What Do You Run For?
Maybe it’s for health and exercise. Possibly to burn off extra energy. Or, is it to see Mrs. Mulay
ride around Mileage Club on a pink tricycle, if we reach our 1000 mile goal?
Congrats to Ms. Hoover’s class for running 17 miles in February. The Mileage Club trophy will
shine brightly in their classroom throughout March.
Sra. Miranda’s class is leading the pack for the month of March!
