The 2nd annual Race With All Your Heart was a huge success!
February in PE was Heart Healthy Month where all the classes participated in different activities that worked one of the most important muscles in our body – our heart. We ended the month with our RACE where the students ran/walked for 15-20 minutes. The students kept up with their laps with Popsicle sticks that were given to them with each lap.
The Race was also a fundraiser for our Athletic Fund which helps us get different PE/Recess/Athletic Team/Field Day equipment! The new equipment helps us promote healthy lifestyles for our students!
This year the students in 3K-12th participated. Together the students ran 254.55 miles during the race!!! Upper School ran 112.75 miles, Lower School ran 111.1 miles and preschool ran 30.7 miles! The Upper School Houses were in competition to raise the most money for 200 points for their House. The winner of the 200 points was the Thames House who raised $1185! Together the Upper School Houses raised $3286 for the Athletic Fund. Overall, the students and families raised over $6100 for the Athletic Fund to help New Covenant promote healthy lifestyles with our students! Thank you to our sponsors, donors, and our HEART HEALTHY STUDENTS!
