Girls on the Run

GOTROver a period of 10-12 weeks, girls participate in an after-school program like no other. Designed to allow every girl to recognize her inner strength, the Girls on the Run curriculum inspires girls to define their lives on their own terms. Throughout the season, the girls make new friends, build their confidence and celebrate all that makes them unique.

The Girls on the Run lessons encourage positive emotional, social, mental and physical development. Participants explore and discuss their own beliefs around experiences and challenges girls face at this age. They also develop important strategies and skills to help them navigate life experiences. We start with helping the girls get a better understanding of who they are and what's important to them. Then, we look at the importance of team work and healthy relationships. And, finally, the girls explore how they can positively connect with and shape the world.

Physical activity is woven into our program to inspire an appreciation of fitness and to build habits that lead to a lifetime of health. At the end of each three month session, the girls participate in a Girls on the Run 5k event. This celebratory, non-competitive event is the culminating experience of the curriculum. Completing the 5k gives the girls a tangible understanding of the confidence that comes through accomplishment as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals. Crossing the finish line is a defining moment when the girls realize that even the seemingly impossible IS possible.

If your daughter is interested in Girls on the Run please have her contact Ms Gomez.

Girls on the Run is every Tuesday & Thursday from 2:40-4:30 pm

Safety Patrol

Since 1920, AAA has proudly provided support to Safety Patrol Programs instilling students with a sense of responsibility and leadership as they protect classmates from dangerous mishaps that can occur at or around schools. With inappropriate risk taking cited as a major cause of injuries among teens and young adults, the early training in safe pedestrian habits provided by School Safety Patrols better equips these young adults for the decisions they will face in the years ahead.

Our Safety Patrol Members are nominated by their homeroom teachers as being the best student in their class to represent the characteristics for Safety Patrol.
