Thirteen third, fourth, and fifth grade girls from Locust Grove Elementary participated in the Girls on the Run 5k in Charlottesville on November 17, 2019. The girls met after school twice a week for 10 weeks to work on their running skills and participate in social lessons to improve their self esteem. During the program they spent an afternoon giving back to their school by helping the custodians collect trash, sweep classrooms, and left a goodie bag and note of appreciation on each teacher’s desk.
