Ever wondered if you could run around the world (or just to New York)?  Well, instead of standing around the yard waiting for the morning bell, kids (and parents) can walk, run, jog, skip, and hop around the world!

 

Carthay's Morning Running Club is a daily running club for grades K through 5th that provides a positive and healthy opportunity for our children to develop a daily routine of physical exercise. Regular before school exercise also helps increase attentiveness and behavior in the classroom.

 

Running Club starts on Monday at 7:55am, and runs daily from 7:55am - 8:10am.  All kids and parents are invited to walk, jog or run around the track. See you there!

 

Each lap around the track is 1/10th of a mile.  With each lap, kids collect a popsicle stick.  We'll count all of the sticks and track progress by placing footprints on the map!  

 

There are prizes, too!  

 

For more details, and/or if you'd like to help for a few minutes on one or more mornings, check out the attached info-sheet or contact the Running Club Chair Deborah Henderson.

The official Ribbon Cutting for our Outdoor Classroom, financed by an LAUSD Community School Park program, was held at the Outdoor Classroom on Friday at 10am, March 18. See LAUSD Press Release HERE. 

 

The Outdoor Classroom will enable students to learn some of their Garden Science lessons in a natural environment, with a seating area as well as a variety of learning opportunities such as a bioswale (which filters rainwater and distributes it into the water table rather than flushing the water directly into the ocean) and a weather station (not yet installed). 

 

The Outdoor Classroom will also be available for seating and community events as part of the Carthay Sunday Playground. The Carthay Sunday Playground is open every Sunday from 11am-4pm.
