Students have measured the distance in meters of the trail around the school.
The 3 classes that measured the trail were within 2 meters of each other, with an average distance of 605 meters. Just 200 meters short of a half mile!!
Each year, after school Intramurals are offered for students in grades 3-6 from October through February. The purpose of Intramurals is to teach fundamental skills and work on lead up games and activities to better prepare students for junior high sports. Girls Volleyball begins in the fall, Boys and Girls Basketball is in the months of December-February. A schedule of practices will be available when the season begins, and practices are from 3:30-5:00. All intramurals activities are FREE!! More information will be available as the season approaches.

About your teacher.........
Mrs. Miller, PE Teacher
I have been teaching P.E. at St. George Elementary for 27 years. I also coach Cross Country and Junior High Track at Rock Creek. I love my job because I love working with children of all ages, and see them move, be active, smile, learn new skills, laugh, excel, and push themselves harder than they thought possible. I enjoy staying active too, morning workouts and I try to run with my dog Chevy when I can. I enjoy and have run various races: 2 mile, 5k, 10k, 10 mile, three 1/2 Marathons, a full Marathon and the Warrior Dash 5 times. I was recently selected as the Kansas JRFH/HFH Coordinator of the Year and also national recognition at the SHAPE AMERICA Convention. I live in St. George with my husband Shawn and my son Ryan is a Senior at Kansas State University.
