A Note from Coach Hamner

April 1, 2022 Lower School News

Dear Ben Lippen Families:

I am emailing you to provide details for the 2022 Governor’s Cup “Main Street Mile” race on Friday, April 22, at 6:30 p.m. I will be collecting registrations (see link below) through Friday, April 8. A hard copy of the registration form will also be sent home in Tuesday folders. This is a FREE event and all participants will get a t-shirt and medal. This opportunity is available for our kindergarten – 4th graders. You might be wondering, “Can my child run a mile?” I’m pleased to share that we are in the midst of our Track and Field unit in PE and our students at the Lower School were given the opportunity to run for their usual amount of time or keep going and run a full mile. Over 75% of our students in kindergarten-4th grade chose to keep running and make it a mile. I would love to see them showcase this to the community and supporters at the race!

I would like to share my vision for this race. I would love for students to wear their PE uniforms with the Ben Lippen logo on the front. Parents, students, and staff that are in attendance are encouraged to gather to pray before the race. We could be a witness to the city of Columbia and possibly attract others to Ben Lippen and Christ. It is an honor to teach your children and I would love them to see the fruits of their labor.

More information about the meeting location and additional details coming soon.

Please get those registrations in during this coming week to the classroom teachers. All registration forms are due by Friday, April 8.

Together in Christ,

Eric Hamner
