Girls on the Run

Girls on the Run
Wilchester is bringing back Girls on the Run!! Julie Knapp, Stacy Volkmer and Jenn Whalen will be the team coaches for an incredible return of Girls on the Run to WCE for girls grades 3-5th.
Registration starts August 1 and ends on August 15!!
What is Girls on the Run?
If you haven't heard of GOTR, it's much more than running. Their mission in a nutshell is- "a program that works to encourage girls to develop self respect and healthy lifestyles through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games culminating in a celebratory 5K run."
A few things to know:
- Each team has 8-15 girls (open to grades 3-5 only).
- It's an 8 week program in the Fall. We will meet Tuesdays and Wednesdays after school until 4:35 pm. Practices start Tuesday, September 14 and end Wednesday, November 3. In other words, it's a two day/week program for 8 weeks.
- The girls will stay after school, given time to change and grab a snack. Parents then pick up from the coaches at 4:35 pm after practice.
- The season culminates in a 5K at Rice University scheduled for Saturday, November 6.
- Registration is done by lottery. You will be notified on August 16.
- See attached the GOTR flyer and registration link
- Feel free to contact Julie Knapp 832-788-1334 or firstname.lastname@example.org you have any questions

Birthday Book Club
Do you want to honor your child's birthday in a special way?? The Wilchester Birthday Book Club is a great way to celebrate your child’s birthday and help grow our school library!
To honor your child, simply purchase a book for the library. Books will be delivered on the first Monday of each month (with the exception of September and January). The honorees will be the first to receive and read the books. When finished, they will return the books to the library for others in the school to check out and enjoy!
If you want to honor a summer or September birthday, please ensure you have purchased a book by August 26th!
And remember, hardcover books will last longer in our school library, so please consider donating a hardcover book when possible.
For information about how to donate a book, see the Birthday Book Club webpage.
