EXCITING NEWS - MORNING MILE STARTS TUESDAY, OCTOBER 12TH!

- Students will complete as many laps as they are comfortable with between 7:30 AM and 7:50 AM. Each day, the number of laps completed that morning will be recorded and transferred to an accumulating database. 8 laps equal 1 mile.
- When the student reaches a total of 5 miles, he or she will receive one colorful sneaker charm. They will continue to receive one sneaker charm for each 5 miles completed. Students will also receive a certificate for 25, 50, 75, and 100 miles. Students receive a special prize after completing 50, 100 and 150 miles.
- Students who are currently on campus prior to the first bell will be encouraged to participate.
- Attend as many days as you like… there is NO minimum required.
- We encourage a 7:30 AM start, but if you have time to complete one lap, you can join in anytime you arrive.
