Kilometre club is back at Tennyson this spring, and will start on Thursday April 5th if it is not raining, otherwise the following week. Kilometre club is free, open to all grades, and run by both parent and teacher volunteers. This year our aim is to offer it four or even five days a week (TBD), with morning runs Tuesday and Thursday (8:20 to 8:45), and lunch runs (12:30 to 12:45) on Monday and Friday (and possibly Wednesday), weather permitting. A very light drizzle is ok but real rain will mean no practice. Children will need appropriate footwear (running shoes). Every child who wants to participate needs to hand in a permission form within the first week (available soon). For morning runs, kids in grades kindergarten to grade 2 should have a designated adult present who can supervise their transition to class. Kids' kilometres will be counted as a collective effort and we will track their progress across the province/s. Like all Tennyson extracurriculars, this program cannot run without volunteers. The time commitment can be twenty or thirty minutes once a week, to supervise the kids, morning or lunch. Or if you can offer some organizational help, that would also be much appreciated. The club will run until approximately mid-June, with many kids hopefully choosing to join the Tennyson Child Run team (June 3) as a goal. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer.
