Grant Ragan Striders 2018-2019

Welcome to another year of Striders at Grant Ragan Elementary! We are excited to be able to offer the Striders program again this school year. The kids sure do love Striders and we love what it teaches them! Striders is a program where all grade levels are encouraged to run/walk during recess on Monday, Wednesday and Friday (weather permitting). For each 1/4 mile lap completed, participants have their cards scanned.  For every five miles completed the participant will receive a token. In April 2019, those participants that have completed a 1/2 marathon or a full marathon will be invited to participate in the Grand Blue Miles Iowa Kidstrong Fun Run (free). 

To maintain the program and make it a success, we NEED volunteers to set up a few minutes prior to recess and scan the cards for each lap completed by the students and then put things away once recess is finished.

Based on past feedback, we are continuing to offer shorter shifts this year. Below, you will see shifts of 1 hour and 20 minutes. We are hoping that this makes volunteering a bit easier and increases the amount of volunteers that are able to participate. Following is the Noon recess schedule in case you are wanting to match up with when your kiddos will be out:

Lunch Recess Schedule 2018-2019

Grade Level   Recess Time   Striders Stop Time

First Grade      11:10-11:30            11:25

Just like last year, if we need to cancel striders due to weather, we will contact the volunteers that are signed up prior to 11 am that day. If you do not hear from us, then please arrive at the school at your scheduled time.  Please do NOT contact the office regarding weather related questions.  

If you are new to the program, please let us know in the comment section. We will contact you prior to your volunteer date and go over the set up with you. 

If you have any questions, please contact us at the following email address: grantragan[email protected]

Please note that on early out Wednesdays we will be ending 10 minutes early.

Thanks so much for volunteering. It means a lot to the kids at Grant Ragan Elementary.
