The Running program at LCM has become a great weekly tradition.   The program will continue all year every weekday morning, 8:15 - 8:45 a.m., and Tuesday/Thursday recess. Before we can get this program up and "running", we need volunteers! Please contact Mr. Chindlund at

All students and parents are welcome and encouraged to join! This is a great way to promote healthy living.

Your child will receive a "running stick" for every lap successfully completed.  Four of these laps is equal to one mile; your child's teacher will be monitoring the miles completed.  There are many wonderful reasons to get out and run, from physical fitness to mental alertness to...prizes!  Students will have multiple opportunities to earn prizes along the way.  So, lace up those running shoes and we will see you on the field! 

Awards will be given to runners who achieve the following levels:

5, 10, 25, 50, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, 350, 400, and 500 miles
