Running Club

Our Fifth Graders are on the run!  Every Monday and Friday after school, the Presumpscot School Running Club, made up of grade students, along with coaches Ms. Bergeron and Mrs. Linevitch, tie up their sneakers and head out for a run around the school grounds.  The goal is to work toward running a mile, without stopping, in preparation for the district’s elementary track held in June.  Runners are working on a variety of skills such as stretching, pacing, breathing technique, running posture, and staying healthy, among others.  Members are encouraged to persevere toward meeting their running goal, and compassion toward their teammates by being positive and cheering them on.  Each session ends with runners tracking their progress, and reflecting on the day’s run.
