Weekly News Blast for the Week of September 10, 2018
Let Me Run 
Let Me Run is a running program for 4th and 5th grade boys, but it's more about the boy than the run. Counteracting the negative pressures society places on boys, the program uses running as the vehicle to inspire, teach, and reach them. Combining exercise with fun activities and lessons, our trained coaches inspire boys to be courageous enough to be themselves, build healthy relationships, and live an active lifestyle. Registration at Gilles-Sweet is now open! Fall season starts on Monday, October 1 and meets Mondays and Thursdays after school for an hour and fifteen minutes, and ends with a 5k race on Sunday, November 18.  Watch a video to learn more and register at  LetMeRun.org. Questions? Email Mrs. Ristagno at  cristagno@fairview.k12.oh.us or Mr. Maeder at  dmaeder@fairview.k12.oh.us

September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the American Library Association and libraries nationwide join together to remind parents, caregivers and students that signing up for a library card is the first step toward academic achievement and lifelong learning. 

In celebration of Library Card Sign-up month, we are encouraging all students in grades K - 12who live in Cuyahoga County to sign up for a free library card and take advantage of one-time fine forgiveness at any Cuyahoga County Public Library branch from September 1 through 30.
