Mohonasen CSD held its first Monster Dash at Pinewood Intermediate School Halloween morning, and the event was considered a huge success by organizers.

Students in grades 3, 4 and 5 ran the course set up around the school while classmates and staff members cheered them on Wednesday. Once they crossed the finish line, the students were greeted with high-fives and healthy snacks; a change from the candy often associated with Halloween.

Mohonasen’s high school cross country team was also on hand this morning to help cheer the kids on. Some of the athletes even ran with the elementary school students to encourage them to keep going. District officials considered this a great event that helped nurture the school community.
