Missouri Healthy Schools and Pattonville School District After School Cross Country Race Event

By Jenna Michaels

The Pattonville School District was awarded a grant from Missouri Healthy Schools (MHS), a program sponsored by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The five-year grant will provide at least $70,000 annually and will allow Pattonville to continue to promote the well-being and academic achievement of students and promote equity and enhance the health, academic achievement and overall well-being of students. 

This fall Pattonville held their annual Cross Country Race Event. With almost 70 students participating the event has grown over the years. Check out the highlight video to see how each year family, friends and students come together for this fun event.
