Feelin' Good Mileage Club, Coach Shamblin and Coach Abruzzino
The Feeling' Good Mileage Club is a school wide fitness incentive program for K-5 students based on walking or running. At recess, students walk or run on the track. For each lap they complete, a card is stamped so students can keep track of their mileage. Tokens are given students when they reach milestones of 15, 25, 50, 75, 100+ miles. In addition, student names and mileage are displayed on a bulletin board outside the gym. The tokens and the recognition students receive help to motivate them to continue practicing healthy habits. Our students really get excited when they reach higher mileage levels.
