It’s Fall and SOAR is in the air! SOAR, or Students Outside And Running, is an all-school running and walking program that inspires fun and fitness during the noontime recess and P.E. for two weeks. The entire McGuffey community takes laps of our playground area trying to complete miles and earn foot tokens.
SOAR also functions as our Fall fundraiser to raise money for our playgrounds and outdoor facilities. Your children should have brought home a sponsor sheet; they are encouraged to ask friends and relatives to donate for each mile they walk.
The McGuffey community has really been running hard this year, logging over 160 miles in the first three days! We are thrilled by their excitement about the program, and we can’t wait to see what they accomplish by the time this year’s SOAR program is done.
