Ball Charter Goes Virtual with Girls on the Run 2020!

August 24, 2020

Girls on the Run will be offered virtually this year to SBCS students. Mrs. Rieger and Ms. Tatham will be coaching. They will meet with the girls twice a week for their lessons. Girls on the Run is our program for girls in 3rd-5th grade that encourages girls to recognize their individual strengths and celebrate connections with others. Each season, girls gain a better understanding of who they are and what's important to them, the value of teamwork and healthy relationships and how they can have a positive impact on the world. Girls also make a meaningful contribution to their community through a team-organized Community Impact Project.

Physical activity is woven into the program to inspire an appreciation for fitness and healthy habits and teach life skills including treating others with care, practicing gratitude and managing emotions. Each season culminates with a Girls on the Run 5K event. This celebratory, non-competitive event provides girls with a sense of accomplishment and instills the value of goal setting at a young age. 

Sign-up ends on September 11th or until all spots are filled. SIGN UP HERE
