LEAP invites community to ‘run, walk, learn’

Students in the LEAP gifted education program at Lindbergh Schools invite the community to run, walk and learn during their “E3 4 P3” Exercise for Equitable Education event on Saturday, Dec. 1.

Participants can register at the site of the event, which will take place from 8 to 10 a.m. at Sperreng Middle School, 12111 Tesson Ferry Road.

Instead of a registration fee, students are requesting donations, gently used books and educational toys.

The event’s organizers are members of the Positive People Planet (P3), a classroom-based organization that includes students from all Lindbergh elementary schools in grades 1, 2, 4 and 5. Their mission is to help build a library in Kiambu, Kenya, a city that has close family ties to LEAP students at Concord Elementary School. The library will serve the entire community, so books for all ages, children and adults, are welcomed.

Community members who are unable to attend the E3 4 P3 event can donate gently used books, school supplies, battery powered lights or educational toys to the LEAP office at Sperreng Middle School, or any elementary school in the Lindbergh district, through Dec. 17.
