The Camarena PTA and staff are in the planning stages of THE EVENT of the spring semester. Camarena Elementary will be holding its inaugural Camarena 5K Color Run on April 19 at 8:00 AM. The event will feature a 3.2 mile walk/jog/run around the Winding Walk neighborhood and will culminate in a burst of color for all participants. We want to encourage a healthy lifestyle for everyone in our community and celebrate the culmination of our first year at Camarena. Stay tuned for more information and registration materials in the weeks to come. Be sure to save the date and take a look at this training program that can help you move from the couch to a 5K in 15 weeks. Now, we only have 10 weeks until our race, but get started today and anything is possible.
P.S. Please don’t tell Hugo about this 🙂
Friday is the big Jump Rope 4 Heart Day. Please remember to Wear RED on Friday. So far Camarena Elementary has raised over $7,000 online and last year the top school in the district raised $9100. With just a little push we can set the pace for our District and help fight heart disease. If you need a little more motivation, for every class that raises $10 per student, they get the awesome privilege of throwing a pie in the face of their teacher. Sounds like a winner to me as I have already “earned” some pie after we broke the $5,000 barrier. The generosity and thoughtfulness of our community is overwhelming.
