WELCOME PARENTS, GRANDPARENTS & GUARDIANS!
All Volunteers, Coaches and Board Members at Girls on the Run of Pamlico County are looking forward to an exciting new season.
The 2017 Fall Program is offered at Fred Anderson Elementary and Arapahoe Charter School. Your girl should attend Girls on the Run every day that her group meets. The program is sequential and will be more effective if she does not miss a day unless she is ill. If she does have to miss a session, please email or call the coach that morning to say she will not attend; so that coaches will not be looking for her or trying to reach you by phone.
If school is cancelled or dismissed early, there will be no Girls on the Run that day. Volunteers will call all parents, so be sure the Head Coach has a phone number where you can be reached.

CHECK OUT OUR HEALTHY FACEBOOK PAGE
We now have an exciting Facebook page with new posts and photos every week. Whatever your opinion of Facebook, I suggest that you take a look at this public page. You do not have to sign up for Facebook to look at our page. If you choose to share it with your girl, it can be a conversation starter as she tells you if the girls shown are in her school or another school, what they are doing, if she participated in a similar activity, what she liked about it, and what she learned. Together you can write a comment. This can be an opportunity to model and teach positive and responsible use of Social Media. Please check out www.facebook.com/GOTRPamlico
