The Mile Club is for first through fifth graders and all are welcome. No sign ups are required. It promotes a life-long love of fitness through the most basic of exercises, walking (or jogging). Thomas Jefferson knew this when he said, “Of all the exercises, walking is the best.”

Not only is the Mile Club great physically, but socially as well as it’s a way for students to meet new friends. Since it takes place during recess, it gives everyone an opportunity to do something positive during that time.

The Mile Club teaches students to manage their time. It also encourages dedication, trust and responsibility since the students keep track of recording their own laps.

The Mile Club provides a challenge…each year, we see how far we can go as an entire school and individually.
