Girls on the Run! We had an incredible inaugural season here at Clark in the fall for GOTR!!! Girls on the Run is so much more than a running club for girls. Consider it more of a social-emotional skills learning and confidence and friendship building program! There is running and a 5K thrown in to work towards mastering a skill and promoting physical health! We would love to have your 3-5th grade girl join our team! Practice begins Monday March 4!
See the attached flyer for registration information. Concerned about price? No girl gets turned away! Reach out to Coach Meagan Lozano at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can direct you to our program coordinator for financial assistance information!

There are many ways information is shared about Clark and the Clark PTO. If you haven't been receiving communications, it might be a good time to review your Parent Square settings to ensure you get all the important information going forward.
