Boys' Running Teams

It's not too late to volunteer with one of our boys' running teams! We have practices from 3:30 - 5:00 on Mondays and Wednesdays and from 4:00 - 5:30 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. You do not need to be a strong runner or make every practice, just have a positive attitude and be a good role model!

If you are interested in volunteering, contact JD Martin at 228-4160 or email


Positive Discipline Parenting Class

Parenting Class.jpg

The parenting class uses the Positive Discipline curriculum, and is a seven week class that is held every Thursday from 5:30-7:30 pm. You can start the class any time and will get a certificate of completion after attending 7 classes. The class is for parents or caregivers of children ages 0-18. Parents will earn long-term parenting skills that will encourage their children to think for themselves, become more responsible, and have a greater respect for themselves and others. The teachings of Positive Discipline are filled with non-punitive, respectful methods that will incorporate kindness and firmness into parenting, help parents get to the core of their child's misbehavior, bring more joy into the home, and give parents a sense of accomplishment. 

##Every Thursday at 5:30-7:30 PM
