Welcome Back to School!

From the book Revenge of the Lunch Ladies

“Dear students, the summer has ended.
The school year at last has begun.
But this year is totally different.
I promise we’ll only have fun.

“We won’t study any mathematics,
and recess will last all day long.
Instead of the pledge of allegiance,
we’ll belt out a rock-and-roll song.

“We’ll only play games in the classroom.
You’re welcome to bring in your toys.
It’s okay to run in the hallways.
It’s great if you make lots of noise.

“For homework, you’ll play your Nintendo.
You’ll have to watch lots of T.V.
For field trips we’ll go to the movies
and get lots of candy for free.

“The lunchroom will only serve chocolate
and triple fudge sundaes supreme.”
Yes, that’s what I heard from my teacher
before I woke up from my dream.

logoPequea Families,

Pequea Girls on the Run registration will be open on Monday, August 3, at noon and will stay open until Monday, August 10, at noon. Please visit www.gotrlancaster.org to register.

Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 5th & 6th grade. We teach life skills through dynamic interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.

We will be meeting on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:30-5:00pm starting this fall at Marticville Middle School. Additional details and information can be found on the Girls on the Run Lancaster website (www.gotrlancaster.org).
