Heart & Sole Informational Meeting

There will be an informational meeting for all girls interested in learning more about the spring season of Heart & Sole. It will be held Tuesday, February 7th, in Room 221. It will start at 3:00 and will end before 3:30. It is open to all HMS girls!

If you can’t make the informational meeting, please come by Rm. 221 for a handout with important information and registration instructions.

Heart & Sole is part of the national program of Girls on the Run. The Heart & Sole program was specifically created to meet the developmental needs and interests of girls in grades 6-8. Girls on the Run® is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.

Meeting twice a week in small teams of 8-15 girls, we teach life skills through dynamic, conversation-based lessons and running games. The 20-lesson curriculum is taught by certified Girls on the Run coaches and includes three parts: understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork and understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large.

Running is used to inspire and motivate girls, encourage lifelong health and fitness, and build confidence through accomplishment. At each season’s conclusion, the girls and their running buddies complete a 5k running event. Completing a 5k gives the girls a tangible sense of achievement as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals. The result—making the seemingly impossible, possible and teaching girls that they can.
