Updated: 6 days ago


Hi Franklin families!

Please see the message below from the Franklin Girls on the Run team coaches: Julia McTigue & Kara Temple (Franklin teachers), Maggie Sarra, Jeni Norstrom & Sarah Harris (Franklin parents). It's a brand new program at Franklin this year and looks amazing!

- Emilie Chang & Jessica Allen 2021-2022 Franklin PTO Co-Presidents PTO Website | Facebook | Instagram Dear Families, Girls on the Run registration closes on Wednesday! GOTR is a program for 3rd - 5th grade girls where they learn valuable lessons such as:

  • Standing up for themselves and others

  • Being a standbyer instead of a bystander

  • Practicing empathy, inclusion and acceptance.

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! If we reach the maximum number of girls that we can accommodate, we will run a lottery on September 15th. 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 the week of September 19th - Nov 23rd. The celebratory 5K is scheduled for November 20th in Medford, MA. Please direct any questions to Julia McTigue at mctiguej@newton.k12.ma.us or to our GOTR contact person Stacey Haynes at stacey.haynes@girlsontherun.org. Click here to register your girl today! Best, Coaches Jeni, Julia, Kara, Maggie, and Sarah
