The St. Patrick’s Girls on the Run team completed their season with the culminating 5K race at Anacostia Park on November 20. Even though it was cold and windy, the girls brought their energy and positive attitudes to join teams from all over DC involving hundreds of girls. The run was a huge success and a wonderful capstone to all the hard work all fall.
A few weeks earlier in the season, the team carried out their Community Impact Project. The girls decided that they wanted to support the teachers in our school by creating a “Feel Better Box” containing uplifting notes with treats attached (donated from Halloween candy). Teachers were invited to stop by the box if they needed a little encouragement on a particular day. What a thoughtful team we had this season!
