Girls on the Run Team Completes Season

The Girls on the Run team at University School of Milwaukee joined other runners from southeastern Wisconsin at a celebratory 5K running event at American Family Field in Milwaukee. USM’s team, which was comprised of 3rd and 4th grade girls, was supported at the event by many members of the USM community, including Upper School girls from USM’s soccer and lacrosse teams, as well as parent and faculty volunteers.

The team also completed signs, posters, and seed bombs to thank staff members who keep students and campus safe, clean, healthy, and well-fed as part of their community impact project.
