Golden Grove Hosts Annual ‘Reindeer Run’

Golden Grove Elementary School physical education teacher Cathlene Lake spent the week of Dec. 12 to 19 looking for reindeer-in-training to pull a tire sleigh down the merry path to cardiovascular fitness.

Lake timed each sleigh looking for the teacher with the fastest team of reindeers.

While kindergarten and first graders pulled a tire sleigh with a very large package, second through fifth graders pulled Santa all the way to the North Pole.

The week culminated with the fifth grade challenge on Dec. 19, boys versus girls, as they pulled Principal Adam Miller and Assistant Principal Philip Preddy all the way to the North Pole.

Golden Grove knows that all fit reindeer have strong legs and healthy hearts. Students, families and staff wish “Merry Fitness to All and a Healthy 2015!”
