A big thank you to Melanie Tingle and Lisa Giullian for leading our club last year, but they can no longer fill this role, if you are interested in helping lead this spring please contact them or Mrs. Shellhorn asap. We will let you know if there is a start date for the spring-we will not be able to hold Marathon Club this fall due to the lack of a leader volunteer. Stay tuned or contact the office for more information or if you would like to help in the future.Marathon Club means that all students and families are invited to run (or walk) around the cement trail on the edge of the playground during club. Each participant will have their own scanning card and laps will be tracked. Awards will be given at the end of the semester. Please feel free to join anytime. Homework miles turned in by parents will also count towards total mileage.If your student is NOT in Boys and Girls Club and has NOT participated before, please see the attached forms.We are so excited to start again as soon as we have a new leader!! If you have any questions, please feel free toe-mail schweglermarathonclub@

Please either print it out & send it back to school with your child, or we will also have forms available at the beginning of marathon club.
The goal of Marathon Club is to provide a sustainable fitness opportunity for Schwegler students and their families. It encourages kids to challenge themselves to complete the goal of walking or running a mile or more once per week throughout the remainder of the school year. All mileage is tracked when students attend. After a student completes a full marathon, they earn a Marathon Club t-shirt, have their name read with the morning announcements, and get their picture posted on a wall in the gym. In addition to these tangible awards, Marathon Club hopes to:
*Promote lifelong wellness *Provide students a sense of accomplishment * Improve concentration in the classroom * Create a fun, non-competitive atmosphere for all participants
