The Running Club encompasses a worldly view and a balanced lifestyle that aligns with International Baccalaureate (IB) principles. We all run as a collective team, rising to the challenge of "Running Around the World". A student can run 1 mile or 100 miles and know that he/she made a contribution to the group. We celebrate as a team at the end of each school year. As the children accumulate sticks from the daily Running Club (10 sticks equal 1 mile), they will turn them in to the classroom teachers. All sticks are then counted towards a specific “milestone".
The circumference of the world is approximately 25,000 miles / 40,000 kilometers. Our major milestones to celebrate along the "trip" are:
Please motivate your child / children to participate so that we, as a team, can "Run Around the World" and stay fit. Parents are encouraged to join their children.
