Principal's Message

Dear Parents of Girls in Grade 3 - 5,


We are excited to announce that we will be hosting a Girls on the Run team at Sheehan this spring.  Girls on the Run is more than a running program. It is designed to support girls’ physical and emotional health and growth.   Girls have fun making connections and meeting new friends.  Girls get outside, set goals, and move more.  Girls learn intentional decision-making, how to use their voice, and become confident leaders.


Led by dedicated volunteer coaches, Head Coach Ms. Christy Harrison, TMS Math Teacher, and Junior Coach, Ms. Katie Kissell, WHS student, and former Sheehan student, girls will meet twice-weekly after school on Tuesday and Thursday from 2:45 - 4:15 PM beginning the week of March 28th.  In the event that we have to transition to virtual programming should COVID guidelines change during the season, we have the ability and a plan in place to do so.


The season will culminate with a celebratory 5K, Your Way event on June 5th.


Due to physical distancing guidelines and safety protocols, the size of the group will be limited to 15 girls in Grades 3 -5.


Registration will open on Thursday, February 25th, and will be done using a lottery process.  A registration link will be sent via School Messenger on Thursday, February 25th.  The lottery will take place on March 5th at 9:00 AM at which time you will be notified of your registration status.


If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.


Thank you,


Kristen Evans, Christy Harrison McKenney, and Katie Kissell
