girls on the run

This fall at Delevan Elementary marked the return of Girls on the Run, a running club for third and fourth grade girls. 

The club focuses on building positive relationships with peers and adults. Sarah Wisniewski, advisor with Jenna Driver and Kayleigh Jordan, said the  runners meet two times a week and learn lessons about positive growth mindset, how to build and keep positive relationships, and how to problem-solve difficult challenges that may occur. 

They also challenge themselves by setting goals and trying to achieve them by running, walking, and even skipping. GOTR is working toward running a 5K in November where members can celebrate the growth they have achieved both mentally and physically over the previous two months.
