Lines Dads with Daughters – This is your group!

Daughters grow up too fast!  Create memories with your daughter(s) that will last two lifetimes!  Indian Princesses is a relaxed program with no required activities beyond what your and schedule allows.  

Indian Princesses is a great opportunity for dads to enjoy one-on-one indoor and outdoor activities with their daughter(s) while they are still young, strengthening the dad/daughter bond forever.  We organize activities throughout the year with other Lines dads with daughters; camp-outs, museum overnighters, get-togethers at a dads house with social time, snack and a craft.

Next event: June 9-11 - Spring Campout at Riverbend Campground Watertown, WI, (free to new families!)

LINES ON THE RUN IS SO MUCH FUN!  Lines students have been having a great time at Lines Running Club playing games and getting exercise before school!

Students K-2 must be accompanied by an adult or guardian.

We need parent volunteers to help make Running Club a success! Please email Tricia Johnson at tbjohnson1@comcast.net if you are able to help out!




We had a great showing at the Got2Run for education on Saturday and our runners did an amazing job despite the rain.  We had a number of runners that finished in the top 10 for their age.  Abree Sanchez, Kalyn Brookbank, Charlie Totten, Jackson Roberts, Ms. G, Ms. Borgerson, Mrs. Fitzgerald, Mrs. McGinn, and Mrs. Roberts all finished in the top 10 and Mark McGinn finished 14th overall in a race of over 1500 people.  

Thank you to all that participated in the run.  Congratulations and keep on Running!!!!!!
