Spring is here - Get in Gear!

We are all back from a relaxing and fun spring break.  That means it is time to run and then run some more!  Once again this year, the Breck Mustangs in lower school will participate in the annual Get in Gear Run.  This fun event will be held at Minnehaha Park on Friday, April 28th at 6:00.  All students in grades kindergarten - grades 4 are encouraged to participate in his heart healthy event.  Year after year the Breck Mustangs have entered the most students from any school in the area.  Consequently, our school is awarded a monetary award to be used for physical education equipment needs!

To help prepare for this running event, the physical education department will hold three training runs after school.  These training runs are fun and gives the students an opportunity to get to know other students while training and playing various running games.

Training runs:  Tuesday, April 11th, 3:15 - 4:15, meet in Gym C
                         Tuesday, April 18th, 3:15 - 4:15, meet in Gym C
                         Tuesday, April 25th, 3:15 - 4:15, meet in Gym C

Each student must pre-register for the training runs.  In order to do this, please email physical education instructor Michelle Carlson at and notify her that your son/daughter will be attending the training runs.  This registration needs to be done weekly.  The training runs are NOT necessary to attend in order to participate in the Fun Run.  We are looking forward to a great turnout of Mustang runners!  If you have any questions regarding this run, please contact me at 763-381-8222.
