Greenville Goal Getters gearing up for spring

GREENVILLE—The Greenville Goal Getters program will be starting again for grades 5th-8th starting March 11 and ending May 10.

The students will learn how to set and work toward goals in the areas of physical fitness and nutrition, encouraging teamwork, and gain confidence along the way. Students will also learn how fun and easy being fit can be.

During the eight-week program, sessions will be held at the Junior High on Mondays, 2:45-3:30 for grades 7 and 8. Sessions for students in grades 5 and 6 will be held at South Middle School on Wednesday, 2:45-3:30 p.m. On Fridays, the Goal Getters will finish the week with a field trip to Chenoweth Trails or the YMCA from 2:10-4:30 p.m. To end the eight-week program, a family Swim Night will be held at the Y.

Registration paperwork will be sent home with students Feb. 27 and needs to be returned by March 7. There is no cost to the participants but they will need tennis shoes and shorts or sweatpants. New Greenville Goal Getters will receive a free T-shirt.

This program is being offered through volunteers and community support. If you are interested in sponsoring a bus for the Fun Friday trips ($40) or making a monetary contribution toward this program for the purchase of T-shirts and youth exercise equipment, contact Greenville School District office, 548-3185.
