Frontier Mileage Club
- Mary Lou Clough, Frontier Elementary School
- Community Involvement, Physical Activity Participation
At Frontier Elementary, we are always looking for ways to encourage our students and staff to remain active outside of school hours. We started a Mileage Club program a few years ago, where our students and staff can track their activity outside of school and earn tokens. They can earn tokens for any activity outside of school hours such as hiking with their families, being on a team sport, or playing outside with their friends. This year, we decided to change our token system to different tokens each month. Student love the change and we have increased our participation each month. We have put in place an incentive that students who collect 6 out of the 8 monthly tokens will be invited to a party in May. We originally thought we would have one or two parties, but with the amount of students that have participated so far, we may end up having each grade have their own party. Our staff has also loved the tokens. Some of our teachers are collecting the tokens along with their students.
