Walking for a Healthy Life

Simmons Middle School started a 100 Mile Club when school started in the fall. Students are able to walk before school in the gymnasium every morning. The students record their miles after they are finished walking. There is a group of boys that are regular walkers. They also get the cones out to mark out the walking area and put them away when the bell rings to start Homeroom. They are dedicated to leading a healthy lifestyle and are excellent examples for our other students. Other students have joined in the walk. This group of particular boys had walked over 60 miles by the 1st quarter break. They will surpass the 100 miles.
