Kudos Corner

Special thanks to Kathleen O'Connor (Uhran) for chairing the Great America Reading Program this year.  This program encourages kids to do more reading for fun!   Log collection has ended, and students who participated will receive their Great America tickets in May. 

A belated but BIG thank you to co-chairs Jennifer Ramovs, Krista Roberts, and Jennifer Ryder, who organized the Mother/Son Night Out on Friday, February 3rd.  And thanks to all the parent and high school volunteers who helped the evening run so smoothly.  It was a successful and well attended event!!

May, May 20! 

Place: Downtown Arlington Heights

Save the date for the fifth annual Got2Run for Education. This is a fun, exciting 2.62 mile mini marathon or 8k run/walk in beautiful downtown Arlington Heights. A sizable portion of each registration fee comes back to Lines School for our wellness initiatives. Last year, Lines School received a check for $1058.75, largely due to a huge turnout of Lines Families and Staff.

We had over 70 registered participants. 

This year, we would love to break the 100 participant mark! This is a great event to cap off our Running Club season and school year! Please check out the website, http://www.got2run.org for details.
Checkout out the flyer for more details.
