SME Mileage Club
The Mileage Club is back at SME! This is a program where students are given the opportunity to run/walk laps around the playground during their recess. They can set goals and track their progress every week in order to earn rewards! When kids are active during recess they go back to class ready to learn and with an increased ability to focus and remember! Kids also get the benefits that come from setting and achieving measurable goals. All awards are designed to provide students with a sense of accomplishment, recognition, and a source of positive image building. We can’t wait to get started on January 3rd!
