Girls on the Run: Registration Now Open
In an effort to save paper this year, Girls on the Run is not distributing fliers notifying families of registration dates. Here is the information for interested girls in grades 3-5:
- We will begin our season the week of March 4th if we have enough coaches. Yes, we still are recruiting!
- At this point, we are accepting a maximum of 40 girls, though we do not currently have the coaching staff needed. See details below to volunteer to coach!
- Once a team is full, a waiting list will begin.
- Once you register your daughter, you will receive an email confirmation. Prior to the start of the season, you will receive a welcome letter from your coaching team with important information including dates, expectations and logistics of the season.
- The registration fee, paid online during registration, is $100.
- Girls on the Run VT Central 5k will be Saturday, May 11 at Castleton University
- Register here for the Central Program. For the Site/School dropdown menu, you will find The Ray School, listed alphabetically under “T.”
- Attendance Policy: It is very important for your child to attend both sessions each week because the lessons build up from one to the next and because group relationships build over time. Participants are not allowed to sign up for one session a week. If you know your child can't make it to both sessions each week, please wait to register another season when her schedule opens up and leave room for a child who can. A child who is absent more than 4 times may be removed from the program for the rest of the season.
Girls on the Run: Calling All Coaches!
We are planning for another great Girls on the Run season at the Ray School. In order for us to host this program, we will need about 8 coaches. A coach is a volunteer position that works with a team to facilitate the Girls on the Run curriculum to program participants in grades 3-5. This position entails approximately four hours per week for a 9-week commitment. Practices will be held on Mondays and Thursdays from 3:00pm-4:30pm. Our spring season will begin the week of March 4th if we have enough coaches. Girls on the Run VT Central 5k will be Saturday, May 11 at Castleton University. Coaches do not need to be runners. Please contact Lauren Amrhein at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to sign up.
Registration for the spring season is now open to students in Grades 2 through 8 (born before May 1, 2011). To register, visit http://

***Update*** Pond Party on Sunday, Feb. 10th, Noon – 3pm
The recent warm temperatures and predicted precipitation has caused HPR to change the Pond Party to Sunday, February 10th. It will still run from 12 pm to 3 pm and offer the same activities. By pushing the event back there will be plenty of time for all that water to freeze solid and to have the new ice prepped to be at its best for the party! This change has left the event short handed, if you are able to volunteer please reply and let me know, email@example.com. Help is needed from 8:30 am for set up, 11:30 am to run games and events, and clean - up at 3 pm. Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday at the Pond Party!
