What is it?
The mileage club is a fitness program that assists students
in the development of positive fitness habits beyond the physical education
How does it work?
Students earn rewards (sneakers) for preparedness and
participation in physical education class, participation in after school physical
activity programs, mileage performance during recess and improved Project
Fit America fitness scores.
students start with one chain and one large sneaker
with sneakers for each class = 1 small sneaker per marking period
in an after school physical activity = 1 small sneaker per program
improved fitness scores during the post-test phase of Project Fit America
= 1 small sneaker per improved post-test
10 miles (grades 1-3) = 1 small sneaker
20 miles (grades 4-6) = 1 small sneaker
25 miles (all grades) = 3 small sneakers
5 small sneakers in for 1 large sneaker
Monitoring and Recording Recess Mileage Performance
Recess aides will monitor and record grades 1-4 during
recess twice a week. Select 5th and 6th grade students to monitor and
record grades 5 and 6 during recess twice a week.
