Board Game Club:
Enjoy playing Board Games? This is the club for you! We play Settlers of Catan, Monopoly, or any other game you want to try! 7th & 8th grade students are encouraged to join Mr. Merrill in room 307 during lunch on Fridays!
Do you like to stay active? Do you like to stay fit? If so, this is the club for you! This is a great club that is run by teachers and staff members who are passionate about running and want to encourage the student body to adopt a healthy and fit lifestyle. Through coaching, mentorship, and support, our advisors work with our student runners to set goals, push themselves, and gain the confidence to take on big challenges! We are so much more than a running club though-- students in our club learn about how to strengthen their bodies and minds, and each practice is full of lessons about proper stretching and fitness, running activities, speed exercises, yoga, and strength training. Because so much of our goal as a club is to help students grow and learn, students are asked to commit themselves to the program, and to be prepared to run in all types of weather!
Our year is broken into two seasons; in the Fall we run as a club, but in the Spring we participate in the Students Run Philly Style program. By the end of the year, many students will be ready for the 10 mi. Broad Street Run! Running Club meets after school on Mondays and Wednesdays. Teachers and students run together around our community. This year, the GWCS Trailblazer Road Runners participated in a Charity 5K, and worked to raise money to fight cancer and support Marlee's Mission. We hope to see you out there!
