Physical Activity Participation
Mileage Club was kicked off during PE classes in September. Students discussed the importance of physical activity and learned about pacing for long-distance jogging or walking. Students then participated at their own pace during recess times and earned Mileage Club foot tokens for every 4 miles completed.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Teachers and students report increased numbers of students being active during recess times. Even students with medical restrictions on playground activities are able to walk and earn tokens. Additionally, teachers have reported a decrease in disciplinary issues on the playground. Mileage Club tokens have been offered as incentives for students to participate in community 5K events, as well.
