2019-2020 Morning Mile Group Picture
Beginning on Date TBD, Timber Creek students will have the opportunity to participate in our Morning Mile club. This is open to all students in Kinder – 5th grade. Research shows that students are better prepared to learn when their day begins with exercise. Runners/walkers will start their day at 7:15 AM out by Tiger Field or on the walking/jogging track. They will walk or jog laps, while socializing with friends each morning. Miles will be tracked using the StrideTrack running program, and students will be rewarded with a necklace and running charms for every 10 miles they complete. They will also have the ability to track their progress from home. This form must be completed and turned in to receive a mileage card, which will be scanned to track laps.
There are many benefits to this program:
- Exercise helps to prevent childhood obesity, high cholesterol, diabetes, and other health concerns.
- Students expend youthful energy and go to class ready to learn.
- Students gain self confidence while getting more fit.
- Students develop a dedication to a healthy lifestyle.
Morning Mile will take place daily, Monday – Friday, weather permitting. The Morning Mile Facebook page web address is https://www.facebook.com/TCEmorningmile. Please sign up for Remind by texting (310) 776-6515 and typing @tcemm for the message. This will alert you, by text message, of changes or cancellations. We will move to the gym if the temperature/wind chill is below 34° or if it is raining.
We look forward to a healthy start to the 2020-2021 school year!
