The fourth annual ‘Cruisin’ with Character’ program at Alhambra Primary will culminate today at Alhambra Township Park. Students began this program in January. The object is to run/walk 13.1 miles within 13 weeks, which the students do during recess. Student representatives from each classroom were also selected based upon their attendance, academics, character and leadership. These student representatives’ responsibilities included leading their class to training sessions, leading students in stretches before running, helping teachers with make-up runs, leading classes in the school cheer, and role modeling positive behavior. Student representatives, pictured from left, are Kallie Hubbard and Oliver Lewis, kindergarten; Tianna Roberts and Laila Barr, first grade; and Jack Henschen and Ryan Tolbert, second grade. As for the “character” portion, Alhambra Principal Cindy Tolbert presented 12 weeks of a school-wide media program designed to reduce exposure to media violence. Students’ final laps in the Cruisin’ with Character mini-marathon will be from 9 to 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, May 7 at Alhambra Township Park. The public is invited to attend to cheer the kids on.
