GHS to host walking program this winter – Darke County Now


GREENVILLE—Greenville High School will open its doors to community members looking for a warm, safe place to hang out on winter evenings.

The public is invited to march at the secondary school from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Thursday starting Monday, November 28 and until March 23, 2023. There will be no march during the Christmas holidays. Also, if the school is closed for a day or if there are parent/teacher meetings, it will be closed to walking that evening. A complete schedule of available walk dates will be made available to walkers at the registration desk. Greenville High School opened its doors to walkers many years ago. The Greenville School Board continued to support this activity in high school.

In the past, dozens of people have enjoyed the program. The Greenville City School District is pleased to support this wellness activity for the benefit of community residents. Seven and a half laps around the inner lane loop equals one mile. Walkers go clockwise on Mondays and Wednesdays and counter-clockwise on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The neighborhood is happy to offer a safe, free and warm place to walk. The program does not cost the school district extra money because volunteers watch the walkers and caretakers usually work in the building during the evening. Thank you to those who help monitor activity including SADD Club, IMTV, NHS, NJROTC, Key Club, Foreign Language Clubs, Student Council, Med Tech, We Are The Majority, Student Body, Members school board and school district staff.

Those interested in walking around the high school are asked to enter through the main entrance at mast level. Log in when you arrive and tick your name when you leave. Walkers are requested to circulate only on the first floor. No running or jogging is allowed. Also, rolling items such as strollers and skateboards are not permitted. Students under 10 must be accompanied by a parent or adult. Take advantage of the activity to support you in your well-being.
