On Sunday our physical education teacher, Claudia Nigro, and our title 1 math teacher, Camille Manolfi, were joined by some of our parents and ran the NYC marathon. The grueling race that spans 26.2 miles is the must run event for all long-distance runners. we are happy to be home to so many participants and applaud their dedication and hard work. Congratulations!
Did you know? The distance of 26.2 miles is a nod to Greek history, the first marathon commemorated the run of the soldier Pheidippides from a battlefield near the town of Marathon, Greece, to Athens in 490 B.C. to announce the defeat of the Persians to the Athenians at the Battle of Marathon.
