Look for registration forms to come home soon in your child’s backpack.

Running is Elementary is the brainchild of Horizon Physical Education Teacher and 2009 P-H-M Teacher of the Year Cindy Batalis. It was created to engage students in a six-week, after-school running club.

Thank you to our sponsors for the 2015 event:

Thank you to the generosity of KIND bars for a donation of granola bars for post-race snacks. Post-race snacks help replenish our runners’ systems after the 1-mile run.

A huge thank you to our t-shirt sponsors – the Hunter Family and Team Pride Athletics. Because of their generous donation, each participant received a free event t-shirt.

Special thanks to Cindy along with P-H-M staff and administrators who spent countless of hours organizing RIE.
