On the Tuesdays that we are on campus for a Run or a Deed, the kids will meet in the library after school. Please send an extra snack and water bottle for this time. On Run days, please make sure your child has proper shoes and clothing for the run. The students will then be divided into their groups and the coaches will hold a short informational meeting and will run or the kids will plan/complete a deed. Pick up time is 4:30 on both Run and Deed days.
Students are required to read 2600 pages. Books read in school can count towards the Read requirement. Books must be on the students reading level. Record of the books read will be kept in the students RDR book. On-level books from the BHE library will count for Read, Deed, Run and Iditaread.

Students are required to perform 26 deeds (or 26 hours of deeds) in or for the community. This year we will strive to help student plan more deeds, but most of the deed will still need to be completed after school. Optional Saturday Deed opportunities (Double Deeds!) will be communicated throughout the program. These will be held on Saturdays and will be completely optional for students to participate. We hope to do 3 of these this year. If you are unsure about a Deed, contact the Read, Deed, Run team.

It is VERY important that your child wears his/her RDR shirt on RDR days. This is for their safety and protection while we run. Also, all participants must have tennis shoes for every Run day. We will send the RDR list to the office so they are aware of your childs transportation change.
