Athletics with Coach Mel

Toilet Paper Challenge

Students who need a second sports credit will have to complete the Remote Spring Sports Requirement (RSSR).

Even though we are not together physically, Gunston remains fully committed to our educational philosophy of “emphasizing the balanced development of the whole student—intellectually, morally, culturally, and physically.”

Weekend - Mile Run Challenge
Open a running app (MapMyRun, Garmin, Strava, etc.) and hit start. Run a mile as fast as you possibly can. Take a screenshot of your time and route. Send it to @GunstonSchool with the hashtag #gunstonmilechallenge as well as either #gunstonGREENteam or #gunstonWHITEteam

This will be a Green/White Event! 

  • Most participation earns points for Green/White Day
  • Bonus points if you wear your Green/White Team Shirt

Fastest time gets added points per team
