Girls on the Run

Dear Parents of Girls in 3-5 grade :

Central Manor was able to host two Girls on the Run team for grades 3-5 this year and we couldn’t have done it without help from the amazing parent volunteers who donated their time.  We are currently looking for a parent volunteer who would be willing to take on the role of head coach.  Experienced assistant coaches are available to support the head coach. If you are interested in coaching, please contact Laura Stephan ( by Friday May 20th.  We will not be able to run this program without a head coach.   Interested in helping but you aren’t a runner?  No problem!  We would love to have you!
