Come join us on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:30 - 4:00 p.m. for some healthy and fun running or walking around the course here at Shepardson STEM Elementary. This year, Mileage Club will begin on Monday, September 16, at 3:30 p.m. and Wednesday, September 18, at 3:30 p.m. Join Mrs. Lemesany and Mr. Rumbold after school at 3:30 on the 4th/5th Grade playground for some walking and running fun.
The program was started for students to value physical activity for health, enjoyment, challenge, self – expression and social interaction.
Mileage Club is open to all students, pre-school through 5th grade with parent approval. (Click here for the permission form.) Sorry, no pets are allowed! Participants in pre-school through 2nd grade must have a chaperone in attendance with them. Students in 3rd through 5th grade can participate without a direct chaperone and will be supervised by our teacher and parent volunteers. Parents and siblings are encouraged to attend with their child.
Participation may be one day per week or both. Participants will meet on the 4/5 playground to sign-in and begin walking or running around the designated course. Each student's mileage will be recorded each day and tokens will be awarded for their accomplishments. Milestones such as 25, 50, 75 and 100 miles will have an honorary award. Some of the walking/running dates will have a special theme (ex. School Day Stomp) and students will earn a special token if they participate that day.
If the club is canceled due to inclement weather, an announcement will be made school wide at the end of the day. Cancellations will be determined by 3:00 p.m. Every walker/runner needs appropriate running clothes, running shoes, a water bottle, and if desired, a snack. Dress in layers and be ready for a sudden weather change.
