On October 2, students at Allesandro Elementary School participated in the “Opening Ceremony” for their Track and Field Week. RSG! Olympian, Ron Skarin, who is beginning his second year of partnership with Allesandro, was asked to begin the Olympic Torch Relay.
Skarin motivated the children by running a lap around their track with a handmade Olympic Torch, and then passed it off to the youngest students in Pre-K, who continued the “Torch Relay” to representatives of each class. At the end, Skarin formally announced the school’s Track and Field Week had begun!
The Track and Field Week ended with an awards presentation and closing ceremonies.
