Mileage Club

 

Having Fun…Feeling Good!

Mileage Club, held at lunch recess on Mon and Wed, has a number of great benefits and we are looking for 100%   participation from our students. Running is not mandatory. Kids can walk, skip, hop or jump! It’s not required EVERYDAY. Just pick one or two or three days a week and kids, teachers and parents will reap the rewards! Walking/Running helps develop fitness while building muscles, burning calories, reducing stress and creating good lifelong habits.
