Check out what Guyton Elementary's Girls on the Run Team has been up to!
The fall season of Girls on the Run has come to a terrific end for the girls of Guyton Elementary School. This season the GOTR program at GES had a whopping 31 participants and 8 coaches, which is the 2nd largest team in Coastal Georgia and the Lowcountry. The program was 13 weeks long with practices every Monday and Friday after school. The girls learned so much about handling peer pressure, building self-esteem, effective communication, and healthy eating habits. On Friday, November 8, the girls presented Mrs. Sarah Crosby and Reid’s Foundation with 14 boxes of toys that they had collected as a part of their community service project, “Give a Toy for Joy.” Mrs. Sarah Crosby is a speech teacher at Sandhill Elementary School and she recently lost her son to cancer. The GOTR participants felt compelled to help Mrs. Crosby and were delighted to have her come to the end of the year celebration. The program takes a break now for the holidays and will start again in late January.
