Fun Run Volunteers
W.H. Taylor Elementary

Hello Taylor Families,

 

It's that time of year again  for our annual Fun Run and we need volunteers on the running route to cheer on the students and to lead them in the right direction!!  We understand that parents want to see their own children start and finish the race and possibly run with them. We are asking Pre K, kindergarten, 1st grade parents to please sign up for the 2nd-5th grade mile run so these parents are able to see their kids and 2nd-5th grade parents, please sign up for the Pre-K - 1st grade runs so these parents can see/run with their children.  It takes ALL of our wonderful parents and families to make this run smoothly, all your help is always greatly appreciated!!

 

Check in the morning of the Fun Run with a PTA volunteer at the coffee food table to get more direction.  If you plan on being on the outer streets during the run, a bicycle would be helpful!! The routes are attached; the Pre-K class does a short dash in front of the school, the Kindergarten classes do the route around the school, far left photo, 1st grade does a little longer run the neighborhood, the middle photo, and then 2nd-5th classes run the 1 mile route on the far right photo on attachment.

 

 

Thank you!!
