Mrs. Higgins and Mrs. Schu' have been getting their 4th graders excited about running since the beginning of the school year.  The PE class has worked on building running stamina, proper running form, and preparing for race day since Spring Break.  As a culminating activity the students had the option to sign up for the Sea Port River Run in Lewiston on April 26th.  Fourteen of the students plus several parents, siblings and friends, signed up as a group and traveled to Lewiston for the run last Saturday. Each had to make their own way there as this was not a school sanctioned event. Not only did these kids learn that running is good for them, but it can be FUN!  Proceeds from this year's event went to the Willow Center in Lewiston.   The  Willow Center is for grieving children to let them know there is hope, understanding, acceptance, support, and laughter.... to help children, teens and their families through the grieving process - the healing process.  For more information on this organization either visit them on Facebook or check out their website at www.willow-center.org.
