President's Challenge Mile Run - permission slips please

If your child is in 1st-5th grade and you have not yet turned in a permission slip, please e-mail your permission to me.

You may have been hearing from your children about the increase in distance they are running around our campus. I am happy to report that this last week saw all 1st through 5th grade students jog a minimum of one mile up to just over two miles during their training.

I have plenty of parent volunteers who have signed up to help with this event and I am just putting on the final adjustments to our driver/volunteer schedule. If you have an interest in watching your child, please do not hesitate in coming along, that is independent of our volunteers.

Although it is a logistical challenge for me to collect permission slips from the student body, I will need to have your permission to take your child off campus. Dr. Grasmuck has agreed to let me send an email request for parents permission so expect to see them this week or perhaps you just got that email a day or two ago. As a last resort, if your child does not have a permission slip turned in, I will run them around the lower playground, Run for the Arts Style.
