Sign up today to help give Diplomat Elementary School students a new place to play!

        In an effort to keep up with the growing needs of Diplomat Elementary’s nearly 1,000 students, we are working to expand and improve our recess areas and add handicap accessible equipment. 

          You can help in this effort by signing up for the Run For Recess! 5K on October 27th at 8:00 AM.

          The race will be a chip timed event for all ages and running or walking levels.

          Register now at for just $20 for adults and $15 for kids 12 and under. And be sure to register by October 1st for a guaranteed t-shirt. After that date, registrations also increase $5.

          There will be a pre-race warmup with Diplomat Elementary’s Golden Apple winning P.E. Teacher and American Ninja Warrior Veteran, Morgan “Moose” Wright.

          And after the race, enjoy food, coffee and water and awards announced by FOX4 Morning News Anchor, Chris Shaw.

          Awards will be given to the top 3 male and female finishers in each age group, as well as the top male and female Master, Grand Master, and Senior Grand Masters.
