Dunellen Admins were honored to attend a Girls on the Run (GOTR) practice at Faber school. GOTR is a physical activity-based, social and emotional wellness after school program for girls in 3rd-5th grade (also available for girls in grades 6-8!) that teaches girls to develop self-respect, a healthy lifestyle and a connectedness to others and their community, while creatively integrating running.
The program aims to support girls early in their lives to develop a positive self-worth and self-confidence to help protect against risky behaviors as they mature. Ms. Hoben and Ms. Healy were able to get the program fully funded through a grant, and the district has provided additional financial support to increase the number of girls who are participating.
Congratulations to Ms. Hoben, Ms. Healy, and everyone else who has been involved this Spring!
