The biggest community event in Manassas Park turns into a virtual 5k and 1-mile run!
Hundreds of families each year have joined Manassas Park City Schools for its annual Cougar Literacy Run and we want to ensure that despite state-wide closures, our tradition of promoting literacy and wellness for our students continues!
From May 2 - May 10, participants will have the opportunity to choose a day, time, and course for their 5k or 1 mile run. This Spirit Week will encourage students to participate in a reading challenge that includes photos of our awesome readers.
Proceeds from the event will continue to go toward purchasing print and digital resources to enhance literacy and integrate mathematics, science, and social studies learning on our campuses.
BELL, the Manassas Park Education Foundation, has a mission is to provide support and additional resources for the students and staff of Manassas Park City Schools.
Through business and community partnerships, we are able to make that happen. BELL funding supports:
- Classroom Innovation grants,
- Scholarships for continuing education,
- STEM education in all four Manassas Park schools.
One of the strongest assets of Manassas Park is the charm of a small-town feel in the busy, fast-paced environment of Northern Virginia. Besides the success of the schools, families and businesses are moving to Manassas Park to embrace that sense of community. At BELL, our goal is to work with our partners to provide increased support for the students of Manassas Park and to strengthen our community from within—beginning with our students. We welcome your partnership and support because our partners are an instrumental part of Manassas Park students' opportunities and successes.
