The Carpenter Running Club is ready to kick off the 2016-2017 season! All students grades 1-5 are invited to participate (parents are welcome too). Join the group on Friday mornings 8:15-8:45 for walking, jogging or running on the track. What a great way to get some fresh air, exercise, socialize with friends, and start the school day energized and focused! The first meeting will be Friday, September 9th, and will go through November 18th (no meeting on Nov. 11th). In addition, on select days all runners will be invited to combine track running with exercise drills (like jumping jacks and push-ups) or windsprints. Participation is optional but fun is guaranteed! Click below to register your child now!
Our annual coupon book fundraiser has begun! Books are $30 each, and $15 from every book goes straight to the school! The book pays for itself with just a few coupons, so the investment is well worth it! A mobile version is also available so you'll never have to remember to bring your book with you. Return envelopes/payment to your teacher or click on our custom school link to pay for the paper book or mobile version. By using the link your child will still get credit toward individual and class prizes. Click below to order your book now! If you choose not to purchase a book, simply return it in the envelope to your teacher.
