All students K-5 are invited to participate in the Trumbull Elementary School District Final Marathon Mile on Sunday, May 19, at the Trumbull High School track. We kicked off our independent running Mileage Club for grades 2-5 last October by running together on the back playground track at recess and jotting down student mileage on their Lap Tracker handouts in the classroom. Outdoor recess is a great time to wear sneakers to school, run at recess and look at your Lap Trackers to see if you are getting close to logging a full marathon (26.2 miles.). Thirteen laps on the playground track is one mile). Sign-ups were sent home.
