READ, RIGHT, AND RUN

The JP2 campus will be participating in the GO! St. Louis Read, Right, & Run Marathon. The GO! St. Louis Read, Right, & Run Marathon is fully integrated marathon program for children in grades K-8 that focuses on literacy, fitness, and character development. Students are challenged to READ 26 books, RIGHT the community with 26 good deeds and learn to set goals to RUN the necessary miles in preparation for the final race. The final race will be in Forest Park the morning of April 6, 2019. The goal for the K-5 grade level is to train and complete either a 1.2 or 2 mile race.
