May 1st through 7th is Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week. In honor of Children's Mental Health Awareness Week, GCPS is highlighting some of the mental health supports and resources that are available to our students. Today, we are highlighting Goochland Elementary's Girls on the Run and Let Me Run programs. At Goochland Elementary, Mrs. Ashby Pond (fifth grade teacher) helps lead the Girls on the Run and Let Me Run programs.
