We hope your child is enjoying the physical education program this year. As a supplement to our program, we’re offering our students an exciting opportunity to enroll in the PS 77 Running Club. This club will provide our students with physical activities that teach running form, improve cardiovascular endurance, develop muscular strength and flexibility.
The practices will be held on Mondays and Tuesdays from 7:30 AM to 8:00 AM in the gymnasium or yard. The Monday practices will be held for 4th and 5th grade students while the Tuesday practices will be held for the 2nd and 3rd grade students. Only enrolled students may be in the building. Younger/older siblings may not attend practice. Students enrolled in the club will receive incentives for completing the program.
If you’re child is interested in joining the running club, register during regular afterschool registration, January 5th 10am-January 7th 8pm. There is a $25.00 fee per student that will be charged through paypal on the after school registration site. A separate, hard copy permission slip is required. Please complete the permission slip and return it to Mr. Goodman ASAP. The permission slip does not substitute for registration.
Once you have registered, the fee is non-refundable. Please note: The Running Club operates on a different schedule than afterschool. Our first practice will be held on Monday, January 9th and last practice on Tuesday, June 13th.
This program will prepare students for the Developmental Track and Field Series as well as New York Road Runner youth events. If your child is unable to join the running club, they will still have an opportunity to learn and participate in New York Road Runner events through physical education programs that take place during the school day such as Mighty Milers and Track.
We hope you share our excitement and encourage your child to join the PS 77 running club.

PS 77 RUNNING CLUB PERMISSION SLIP
We are pleased to inform you that our PTA and School Wellness Council are offering students an exciting opportunity to register for the PS 77 Running Club. This club will meet from 7:30 AM to 8:00 AM on Monday (4th and 5th grade) and Tuesday (2nd and 3rd grade) in the gymnasium. Mr. Goodman and Mr. Early will provide the students with exciting lessons that teach proper running form, improve cardiovascular endurance and develop muscular strength. The objective of this program is to prepare students for the New York Road Runners Track and Field meets (grades 4-5) and Mighty Milers events such as the youth jamborees (grades 2-3). If your child cannot commit to joining this club, they’ll still have an opportunity to join the track team and participate in New York Road Runner events this spring.
Prior to the start of practice, please wait with your child at the Third Avenue entrance until the security agent opens the doors to the building. The program will start the week of January 9th and conclude on the week of June 12th. Please make sure your child wears appropriate attire to practice. A water bottle is recommended but not mandatory. If your child requires an asthmatic inhaler, they must bring it to all practices and meets. Please note: only enrolled children may be in the building. Younger/older siblings may not attend practices.
To enroll in this club, students must submit this signed permission slip to their classroom teacher by Friday, January 6th. Spots are limited so please return this slip as soon as possible to your classroom teacher. In addition, there is a $25.00 fee per student that gets paid through paypal on the afterschool registration site.
Please check all that apply and return this form to Mr. Goodman’s or his mailbox before 1 /6/16
