The Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) and Sodexo presented Claremont Elementary School with the Healthy Schools Award for participating in the Healthy Kids Fun Run at a school wide assembly this morning. In addition, the Claremont P.E. department received $1,000 and each student received a healthy snack pack from Sodexo.
Claremont is one of five schools to receive the Healthy School Award for the most student participation at the MCM-organized Healthy Kids Fun Run held on Oct. 27, 2012. MCM mascots Miles and Molly and U.S. Marines from Marine Corps Base Quantico participated in the event.
Claremont students participated in the Healthy Kids Fun Run through the coordinated effort of the school’s P.E. teachers and PTA.
