St. David School Creatively Encourages Parent Engagement

November 30, 2011 - St. David Catholic School teachers, Terri Lynn Lepage and Eleanor Anderson, volunteer their after school time coordinating the "Roaring Runners Club" two days a week. "The school running club promotes the development healthy habits. and are trying to be innovative, engaging, and most importantly provide our students the opportunity for daily exercise. The club builds lifelong skills including self-confidence, self-discipline, self-respect, integrity and humility. As a member of a team working together for a common goal, the club also helps students improve in the areas of sportsmanship, teamwork, and respect for others", states Lepage.

As the "Roaring Runners Club" approaches their first official event, the Salvation Army's Santa Shuffle and Elf Walk this Saturday at 10 am, they decided to invite their parents, grandparents, and older brothers and sisters to attend their last practice before the race. Not only did student families participate in the practice, the teacher's families also came out and participated in the event. "I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to have fun and laugh with my grandchild, learn about healthy choices and meet other families that attend the same school" states Theresa Spencer, school grandparent that attended the practice with her granddaughter. "These opportunities are what makes our school a great place to be. They are filled with laughter and learning for everyone", said Eleanor Anderson grade 1/2 teacher at St. David School.
