We are excited to announce that the Irving Pacers are back! The Irving Pacers is a recess activity for students who choose to walk or run around the block. This is an optional activity for the Friday recesses in May and June. Students will carry punch cards and get a punch every time they pass the front door. Three laps around the block is equivalent to 1 mile. For every mile they walk/ run they will receive a foot token to put on a bracelet. This is a free activity and all students in all grades are welcome to participate.
Weather permitting, we will be offering this activity on the following Fridays: May 4, 11, 18, and 25 and on June 1. We will have adults stationed at several spots around the block to supervise and cheer students on. We will also have water cups available in front of the school at the punch station. Students are invited to bring their own water bottles. This is a great activity to promote exercise and wellness. We are looking for 8 volunteers for each week from 11 AM -12 PM. If you are interested in volunteering please contact Hannah O’Connor at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please contact me or Mr. Hodge if you have questions. Thanks and we look forward to seeing your walkers.
