Parent-child program set
Little Daisies, a parent-child program inspired by Waldorf Education, will be offered from 9–11:30 a.m. Fridays, Oct. 11–Nov. 1, at River Canyon School, 730 25 Road.
The class is open to children ages 12 months to 5 years old, accompanied by an adult. The morning features creative free play, handcrafts, morning circle games and songs, and a snack.
Tuition is $75 per child for the four-week session, which will be led by Ashley Costello, one of River Canyon’s kindergarten teachers.
Walk/run to buy books
In an effort to raise money to buy books for the Orchard Mesa Middle School Library and other school needs, the middle school’s Parent/Teacher Organization has planned a 5k Walk/Run that will take place Oct. 12, beginning and finishing at Eagle Rim Park.
When Mesa County Libraries moved its location from the middle school, it left students with very little reading material. Funds raised will help purchase books.
Registration will begin at 8 a.m. and the walk/run will get under way at 9 a.m. Registration is $27.50 for adults and $17.50 for students.
Registration forms are available at Orchard Mesa Middle School or register online at http://www.imathlete.com/events/ OMMS5K. Call Maggie La Hue at 314-3201 for information.
Anna Banana event slated
The 10th annual Anna Banana 5k, to benefit the Annalee Foundation and scholarships awarded each year to graduating seniors, will take place Sept. 28 at Connected Lakes.
The event is held in conjunction with the Fruita Monument High School cross-country race, in memory of Anna Janowitz, a Fruita Monument High cross-country runner who died in a car accident in August 2002, when she was 17 years old.
Registration is at 7 a.m. and the race starts at 8 a.m.
