GOTRLove running and want to inspire kids?  We’re looking for a volunteer to coach this season’s Girls on the Run team at Airport Heights.

The Girls on the Run mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum that creatively integrates running. Girls on the Run is an after school youth development program for girls in the 3–5th grades. The 10 week curriculum innovatively weaves training for a 5K run with lessons that empower girls to celebrate their bodies, honor their voices and embrace their gifts.

Coaches are provided with training, and the season runs Feb. 23 – May 8th.  The club meets twice a week.  This will be the third season Airport Heights has hosted the program.  Contact Krista Rice at 742-4550 for more information.  Once we confirm a coach, we’ll let you know about sign-ups!

Students in Ms. Becker’s class recently completed their second books using the “picturing writing” process, an art and literature method developed by Beth Olshansky.  This approach accesses both visual and kinesthetic modes of thinking and uses quality picture books as models.  Check out the results.


Love to count mobankney?  The Airport Heights PTA needs a treasurer!  If writing is more your style,  we also need a secretary.  Come to the meeting on Thursday at 5:30 pm to volunteer.  Other topics of discussion will include a presentation on the drainage issue at 16th and Alder and a decision about the school photographer for next year.  We also need volunteers for the Winter Fun Night Committee!  Please join us.
