Wednesday, August 14, 2019
The 100 Mile club is A athletic encouragement program with organizations in school across America. On Tuesdays and Thursday from 3:45 until 4:45, Holyoke student will have the opportunity to be a part of this program. High school and parent volunteers will meet elementary students in the elementary school's lobby each Tuesday and Thursday and begin the hour-long running time. If the temperature is above 35 degrees Fahrenheit then students will run around the soccer field in the elementary playground. If the temperature dips below 35 degrees student will run through the hallways. There is a ten dollar fee for students to participate, and a students distance will not be tracked until that fee is paid. Volunteers can also run or walk to track their distance, free of charge. both students and volunteers will receive prizes and certificates of distance traveled at the end of the school year for the most miles traveled. the student, out of each grade, with the most traveled mile, will receive our mystery grand prize! The goal of the 100-mile club is to promote healthier lifestyles in Holyoke's students, and by doing so we hope to exceed our cumulative goal of 100 miles traveled by May of 2020. If you’re interested in signing your student up or interested in volunteering please contact Karen Ortner, FCCLA adviser, who will put you in touch with her students who are organizing the effort.
