The Seattle Children’s Kids Marathon is a great way to get kids excited about physical education and reward them for their accomplishments. The Seattle Children’s Kids Marathon is structured to allow children—kindergarten through eighth grade—to complete a full 26.2 mile marathon at a rate that is fun and safe for their growing bodies “one mile at a time.” It also encourages them to read 13 books and perform 13 do rights (good deeds).
Schmitz Park Elementary (under the guidance of Mrs. Sealey) has a team. Families can go online to sign their student(s) up. The school is registered under: SCHMITZ PARK FOXES! Password: FOXES Once a child is signed up, Mrs. Sealey receives an e-alert and adds their name to her tracking sheet in the gym. Go Foxes! Remember…miles earned in the October 24th Move-a-Thon and the October 25th Monster Dash (benefitting West Seattle Cooperative Pre-schools) count!! http://www.seattlemarathon.org/kids/parent.php

Please note that all volunteers must sign in at the front desk using Help Counter and print a badge. Those parents who have not completed all three steps in the volunteer process, will not show up as volunteers in this system and will be asked to register as a visitor until they can complete the process. Please let us know if you need access to a computer at school in order to complete the training. We appreciate your help and cooperation with these new requirements.
