Girls on the Run...is so much fun!
Posted 05/23/2019 09:40PM



This year our Silver Oak Girls On The Run team was made up of 29 fantastic 4th – 6th grade girls that learned over the course of 10 weeks to express joy, optimism and gratitude through their words, thoughts and actions. They realized their power and responsibility to be intentional in their decision making, and nurtured their physical, emotional and spiritual health all while learning that they have the ability to stand up for themselves and others.

Then on Saturday, May 18th, those 29 girls, their running buddies, our Principal Mr. Greenfield, and his 2 sons ran, walked and skipped their way to the finish line of the 16th annual Girls on the Run of Silicon Valley 5K race held at Vasona Lake Park in Los Gatos along with close to 5,000 other participants and realized that they ALL were capable of completing a 5K race!

We are all so very proud of each and every girl that participated this year and look forward to another great group of girls next year. If you would like to make a difference in these girls lives and would like to help coach next years group please contact Coach Gina elianazmama@gmail.com, Coach Jolene jjereza@yahoo.com, or Coach Kathleen Kathleen@KathleenTanabe.com for more information.
