In Girls on the Run sessions these weeks they'll learn why it's important to cooperate with others, they will explore and discuss areas where people succumb to peer pressure and learning a specific strategy to resist it, they learn strategies to assert themselves in a healthy manner, and the consequences of gossiping. In Girls on Track, the participants discuss how to identify their feelings, learn how running can be a way to relax and a time for self-reflection, and will learn techniques for conflict resolution.

We hope your daughter is enjoying the Girls on the Run season thus far. We are excited to have more than 70 girls running throughout Wood River Valley this spring. We hope that this season’s participants are experiencing a program that inspires them to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. To sustain the programs and insure that GOTR is an opportunity for all girls across Blaine County, we are conducting an optional pledge drive. We hope your daughter will be participating in the pledge drive in support of Girls on the Run programming in our community. Final deadline for all contributions to be returned to your GOTR site is Thursday, May 16th.
In this weeks of Girls on the Run we covered topics about values, standing up for ourselves, peer pressure and gossiping. In the middle school group we talked about the importance of slowing down, communicating with care, avoiding peer pressure and harmful substances, and gossiping/bullying.
