Does your school have the most school spirit? 

This year, BCSD will host a free districtwide recreational activity for K-5 families on Veterans Day. Each of our five elementary schools will compete; the elementary school with the most participants will win a trophy and a special award will be given to the fastest school. The event will include a salute to Veterans.

Participants should park in the front lot and walk to the large pavilion at Elm Avenue Park in Delmar for check in from 8-8:45 am. 

The Spirit Run’s Schedule is as follows:

8-8:45 am: Day of check in (Large Pavillion)
