Gator Marathon Club


These students ran a total of 26.2 miles or more all year and earned a spot in the Garrett Gator Marathon Club.  Every day in class students had to run for 10 minutes outside and would get a popsicle stick for every lap they ran.  Every 9 weeks of school popsicle sticks were added up and charts stating the top three runners (male and female) in every grade level were posted around school.  The top male and female runner in each grade level was awarded a trophy at the end of the year awards ceremony.  In order to join this club students had to have a total of 210 sticks turned in all year long.  Our top runner, 5th grader, Joseph Hernandez had 303 sticks equalling to 37 miles.  Congrats Garrett Gators for accomplishing such a great achievement.  I can't wait to see what the 2018-2019 school year has in store for you all.  


I would also like to thank our tshirt sponsor, JLA Realty Yessica Guerra and Lorena Tamez for providing our students with such a great marathon club shirt.
