Franklin's Girls on the Run Program - Spring 2022 Registration is Open!


Dear Franklin families,

Please see the message below about the Franklin Girls on the Run program! Registration is open for the Spring 2022 season.

Thanks! - Emilie Chang & Jessica Allen 2021-2022 Franklin PTO Co-Presidents Dear Families, We are so excited that Girls on the Run will be coming back to Franklin for the Spring 2022 season! Now more than ever, girls need the social and emotional skill-building lessons of Girls on the Run. Through our program, 3rd - 5th grade girls work together as a team to explore valuable lessons such as: · Standing up for themselves and others · Being a standbyer instead of a bystander · Practicing empathy, inclusion, and acceptance Girls on the Run is here for your girl! By signing her up for our program, you are giving her the opportunity to safely connect with other girls in our community in an inclusive and empowering space. Over the 8 week long program, your girl will meet with her peers 2 times per week to review our research-based lessons that incorporate physical activity in a fun and engaging way. She will connect with girls, build healthy habits, and stay physically active! Registration for Girls on the Run opens March 4th! Registration is open for 2 weeks. If we reach the maximum number of girls that we can accommodate on a single team, we will run a lottery on March 18th. The team will meet on the field in the back of the school on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 3-4:15pm. The season will take place beginning March 29th and go into June. The celebratory 5K is scheduled for June 11th. Please direct any questions to Kara Temple at templek@newton.k12.ma.us or to our GOTR contact person Stacey Haynes at stacey.haynes@girlsontherun.org.
