 Dear Parents and Guardians,
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, Monte Vista students are preparing for our annual Turkey Trot. This special event will take place on Wednesday, November 27, 2019. This is a fun jog/walk, which is a culmination activity for our jogging unit in Physical Education. For the Trot, each grade level will run for a set amount of time. One of our goals in Physical Education class is to help all children gain the knowledge, skills, confidence, and appreciation to lead an active, healthy lifestyle. Progression, personal best, correct running form, and developing good pacing strategies have been emphasized during our cardio respiratory endurance training in Physical Education. Our motto is: pace not race! Students should wear active clothing and tennis shoes on the day of The Trot. All students are expected to participate unless a medical excuse is written for the day.
To further increase their cardio respiratory endurance, beginning on November 18th, during lunch recess, your child has a chance to earn Toe Tokens by running laps around the field (4 laps = 1 mile or 1 Toe Token). This program will last for four days. Students need to wear tennis shoes to participate safely.
Family members are welcome to join their child(ren) during their scheduled Turkey Trot run time. For this event, visitors may sign in at the south parking lot. This alternative sign in location is an effort to alleviate the congestion in the front office. Please remember to bring a photo I.D.
In addition, we welcome families to join students at their lunch time in the cafeteria. The recess playground will remain closed to guests. Lunches are $3.50 for adults and may be paid with cash or check (exact change is appreciated). Turkey Hot Dogs and Hamburgers will be served. Your lunch cannot be paid for through a child’s lunch account.
