Many Miles Were Traveled During Our Cross-Country Unit

Students, in all grades, were given the opportunity to run or walk our cross-country course during their PE classes.  The requirement is to complete one mile per class.  Some students went above and beyond expectations and traveled 2, 3, even 4 miles during one 40 min class.  In all grades we reward them with a plastic foot to put on their shoelaces or hang on a necklace to celebrate their accomplishment.  In grades 5 through 8 we also acknowledge each of their miles traveled by adding a sticker after their name on the "Mile Club" bulletin board outside of the gymnasium.  Grades 5 through 8 traveled over 1,600 miles this year during our 2 week unit - AMAZING!!  Below are some pictures from the unit.
