2018 Juana Run

This year we are excited that 3-time Olympian and D.M.R. world-record holder Shannon Rowbury will be racing with us! A San Francisco native, she represented the U.S. at the 2008, 2012, and 2016 summer Olympics, ran the 1600m on the distance marathon relay team that holds the current world record, and holds the American record for the 1500m. She will certainly take the competitiveness of the Juana Run to the next level!

The Juana Run is a day of fun for the whole family featuring 8K, 5K, and one mile races, and an array of races for the kids. All proceeds from the race are donated to local schools and athletic organizations including the Gunn High School Sports Boosters, the Juana Briones PTA, and the West Valley Track Club.

Pre-registration will include a T-shirt for all runners! The race will still tour the lovely Barron Park neighborhood in Palo Alto, and all runners can enjoy fresh hot pancakes after the race. Gift cards for winners are generously being provided by A Runner’s Mind, Fleet Feet, and Sports Basement!

A running goal can be the best way to motivate your new year’s running. With a month left to train, the Juana Run is a great goal. Support your community, improve your fitness, and start 2018 off right!

Palo Alto Children’s Theater Outreach Program

Our upper-grade students recently wrapped their performance of Treasure Island, which was enjoyed by the entire student body and our families. The PTA received this note of thanks from the Briones principal for funding this program.

A big “Thank You” to our PTA for sponsoring the Palo Alto Children’s Theater Outreach program that allowed many of our students to perform in the recent production of Treasure Island.

The show was outstanding and our faculty and students had the opportunity to see their amazing work earlier today.

Thank you, PTA, for your support.
