I wanted to give you all a quick update on the progress of the Parker Woods Montessori Flying Pig Kids Marathon Team! The students have all been working so hard these past months walking, running and skipping their way to 26 miles and the end is in sight! The Flying Pig Kids’ Marathon 26th Mile Event is almost here. This special event takes place Saturday, May 2nd at 12:00pm. Students can complete the 26th mile of their incremental marathon on the actual Flying Pig Marathon Course. It costs 10$ and the perks include a t-shirt, finisher’s medal and a huge cheering crowd to celebrate the accomplishment!
This Friday, April 18th is the last day to register!!
You can register online at https://secure.getmeregistered.com/get_information.php?event_id=11436 Be sure to select Parker Woods Montessori as our school in the drop-down menu, even if you’re a parent or non-student who is part of our group. Parents who would like to run with their children need to register as well. Paper registration forms are available in the office. You can give the paper forms to me directly or put them in the PTO mailbox. If you are registering for this event could you please let me know via email, phone or text so I can be sure everyone is accounted for?
If you would like to participate in the 26th mile event downtown but $10 is too great a financial burden you are still able to participate! The Flying Pig has a scholarship fund for students called Pig Pals, just fill out the paper registration form and check the box that says Pig Pal. We want to be sure that everyone who wants to can be involved!
Any student who registers will receive a t-shirt and finisher’s medal. Those who can’t attend the downtown event can pick up their perks at a later date. We are discussing having a finishing line ceremony at Parker Woods Montessori on Saturday, May 9th before the End of the Year Picnic.
