Capitol 10,000

As a part of our school-wide effort to help students become healthier, happier and smarter, the LCpl Nicholas S. Perez Elementary School Running Team participated in the Statesman Capitol 10,000 Run this past weekend. At least 43 students, staff members and family members walked or ran the ten-kilometer (6.2-mile) course! The runners prepared with early morning practices three times per week. There motto was “Run like a Python!” This was one of the 10 or more family field trips that the school takes each year to expose students and their families to opportunities outside of the neighborhood, including Explore UT, the MLK March, Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day, the Austin Powwow, the Texas Book Festival and more.
