Cheering on the runners

the Inland Register

(From the Oct. 2, 2008 edition of the Inland Register)

St. Mary School’s 2008-2009 cheerleaders, coached by Debbie O’Keeff, the school’s fourth grade teacher, helped with the assembly to kick off the school’s 28th Annual Fun Run recently in the school gymnasium. The student-driven event is a major source of funding for the school. The school’s seventh graders meet in the spring to create a design for the Fun Run T shirts and decide on a theme for the fall event. As eighth graders they help with the assembly by creating and performing skits in appreciation for the businesses who sponsor the purchasing and printing of the t shirts that all of the students will earn and wear for the run. Students can earn prizes for running the most laps, getting the most sponsors or even writing especially neat letters. This year’s Fun Run is Wednesday, October 8.
