Team Ultra is an after-school program for 3rd – 5th grade students that promotes both character and physical health. What started as a an after-school running club at Sharpe Elementary School has evolved into the Team Ultra program present in all six of Marshall County’s Public Elementary Schools. Team Ultra meets one day per week for each Team Ultra group at our schools. The program operates from September through March each year (sign up for the program occurs in August) and concludes with a Team Ultra Field Day on the campus of Marshall County High School. Team Ultra Field Day gathers all Team Ultra school groups together for a day of education and Team Ultra games. Aside from students and parents that support Team Ultra, the MCPHD is assisted by staff at each elementary school that includes individuals that work in the AmeriCorps program and Family Resource Centers. If you would like to know more information about the Team Ultra Program, please contact us at 270.252.2704.
