Girls on the Run 5k teams from BISD

BISD had teams from Mullendore, North Ridge, The Academy at West Birdville, and The Academy at C.F. Thomas elementary schools participate in the Girls on the Run fall 5K race in Dallas.

Girls on the Run (GOTR) is a positive physical activity-based program for girls in grades 3-5, and has chapters all over the USA. The girls learn life-skills and strategies, make friends, gain confidence through lessons and games, and train for a real 5K race.

The Academy at C.F. Thomas has had a GOTR team for the past nine seasons, they are happy the program has now expanded to three other BISD schools. For many of these girls, coaches, and running buddies, this was their first-time ever to complete this distance in a real race.

For information, visit the GOTR DFW website at or contact Elizabeth Shier at The spring season starts in mid February and runs through early May.

The Communications Department publishes the employee newsletter "e-nlightened" each week so staff can keep in touch with what is going on across the district. Email your pictures and a brief description to Communications and we will include them as space permits.
