Girls on the Run Program Offered to 3rd & 4th Grade Girls




Highlands 3rd and 4th grade girls are invited to participate in the Girls on the Run program, a fun, research-based curriculum that creatively integrates running with a mission to inspire every girl to reach her limitless potential in life.


The program will be offered at Highlands Elementary from 3:45-5:00pm on Mondays and Thursdays beginning March 2, 2020 through May 21, 2020. There will be a Girls on the Run Spring 5K at the North Park Boathouse on Sunday, May 17, 2020.


In early February, program information was communicated to girls in grades 3 and 4 during a school assembly, and letters and applications were sent home to parents. For an application or information, contact the school office at 724-224-0300
