The McDowell Winter Running/Walking Club
Who: McDowell students and staff
What: An opportunity to stay active this winter walking or running after school.
When: Mondays and Thursdays after school through February 12. We will meet in the hallway between the office and the auditorium at 2:40. The end time is flexible, but try to stay at least an hour and you must have someone who can pick you up by 4:30. The exception to that is if you are staying to watch a McDowell basketball game. The schedule of home games is below. At 4:30 you can go to the high school gym for that 5:00 game, but will no longer be directly supervised by staff. The student cost to enter the game is $2.00. There is also one home wrestling meet on January 22.
Where: Outside on the track if the weather is not dangerously cold (or just too miserable) and inside McDowell’s halls when necessary. Bring layers, hats and gloves!
Why: We know it is good for our physical, social, and emotional health to get fresh air, sunshine, and to be active. The healthier we are the better we will do at school and work.
You do not have to commit to being here every Monday and Thursday. Join us when you can, but at the end of February we will draw names for some prizes like gift cards to Dick’s Sporting Goods. The more times you are here and the more miles you log, the greater your chance of winning!
You must return the attached permission slip to stay.
