Vista Feeder Elementary Schools Race Ahead

On a beautiful fall afternoon in September, 200 elementary students from the Mountain Vista High School feeder area raced in the Sixth Annual Vista Cross Country Elementary Feeder race.  Students from third through sixth grade, many sporting their new green or pink Vista Nation cross country t-shirts, ran the one-mile course while parents, siblings and teachers cheered them on.  The Vista cross country team was on hand at the finish line to record finish places and hand out ribbons and medals. 

Mountain Vista High School athletes also volunteered for the event and ran with any student who needed some extra encouragement. Parent volunteers also joined in the fun.  

The event is held annually to help introduce the great sport of cross country to elementary students, and it’s a way for the Vista cross country team to give back to a very supportive feeder community.

When it comes to mental health services, communities traditionally focus on supporting kids as needs arise. This work is crucial for the safety of our students. Equally important, though, is prevention-based programming that can help, early on, prevent the social-emotional challenges our kids may be experiencing from escalating.
