    Girls empowerment program coming this spring – registration open

    The PNA is excited to partner with Girls on the Run is this spring to bring their program to the Phinney Center.  Girls on the Run is a girl empowerment program that teaches girls important life skills while creatively integrating running and walking. This program is 10-weeks long and is for 3rd-5th grade students that identify as female. It culminates in a celebratory, non-competitive 5K (3.1 miles) run/walk. Last summer, PNA hosted the Girls on the Run summer camp and we were impressed by the mission and the vision of the organization and the outcomes the program has shown for preteen girls. So, we're enthusiastic to continue to offer the program in our community! Registration is now open; if more than 15 girls apply by Jan. 24, random lottery will be used to select the 15 girls for the team.

We will always post the status of PNA business operations here, as well as on Facebook, by 6:30 am. click "read more" for a link to our full snow closure policy. ...
