From the desk of Dr. Houston Barber, Superintendent for Frankfort Independent Schools:
The ProActive 5K race will be held on April 22 at 6:30 in downtown Frankfort. Today is the last day to sign up at the reduced price of $10 child/$20 adult. You can still sign up until the day of the race for $15 child/$25 adult. Here is the link: http://proactivetherapy.org/pro-active-for-life-5k/ to sign up and a PDF copy of the form. Please put Second Street School as your team name on the forms.
Our school has a chance at winning $500 and a monarch butterfly garden if we have the most participants cross the finish line for our team. ANYONE can be on our team, NOT just students. Ms. Starkey is having “training” days for this race after school today and Tuesday April 19. Last year, Second Street won the school awards and we had close to 200 runners cross the line for the Second Street School team. Let’s try to do the same this year.
The PTSA will be setting up a table on the Old Capitol Lawn for our Second Street runners approximately an hour before the race begins. It will be a place to meet and we will provide water and fresh fruit for the runners after the race. We will also provide face painting to show our school spirit before the race. Also, if you need a safe place to keep your belongings while you run we will have parents at the table the entire evening to keep an eye on things. We do need some volunteers though. If you are able to donate bananas or Cuties for the table, are able to supervise the table or are able to be part of the cheer team that supports our runners around the finish line, please respond by email to let us know.
