The Cougar Literacy Run is a community 5k and kids' color run (for Manassas Park students) to promote literacy and wellness for our students. The day of the event includes family friendly activities and the BELL Community Expo. Prior to race day, students at our K-5 buildings take part in a reading challenge. Once achieved, students receive a free t-shirt and entry into our color run. Proceeds from the event go to purchasing print and digital resources to enhance literacy and integrate mathematics, science, and social studies learning at our K-5 campuses.
