    Fun Run is an exciting school community event that most students enjoy.  It is not a race, but a fun run.  Students may go at their own pace for 15 minutes and safety is a huge priority.  In fact, we’d love for you to join us as a volunteer.  In the past we ran at the Freret Street Campus.  But with COVID and now our field is getting new turf, we are back to “old school” Fun Run, with students running around Willow Street Campus.
     
    Proceeds from the Fun Run have paid for the new turf field, our beautiful playground, and much more.  Students get sponsors in advance, and we tally their laps, and students can bring in any sponsor money for the next few weeks.  No one has to run or bring in sponsor money, but it is a cheerful bonding exercise.
     
    Kindergarten and 1st grade will run inside the gates in the morning.  Grades 2-5 will run on the sidewalk with plenty of volunteers and staff to ensure safety.
