Come have FUN, get FIT, and enjoy the FRESH air! – Merriam Milers (beginning Wednesday, May 8th)

Come have FUN, get FIT, and enjoy the FRESH air!

Who: Any students from Merriam (parents and young siblings are welcome too!)

When: Wednesday mornings, 8:00 – 8:35 beginning on May 8. We will continue to meet on Wednesdays as long as weather permits, through the end of the school year. Weather cancellations and program updates will be sent to the e-mail address you list below. (click here to access downloadable/printable form)

Where: Back playground, Parker Damon Building

What: We will be exercising and tracking our mileage on a measured course in the back playground. Students may run or walk (or jog or skip or shuffle or some combination of these). Using a chart, students will track their mileage and be rewarded with a sneaker token at certain accumulated distances. We will be discussing goals, how to work towards them, and how to adjust them if necessary. This is a “drop-in” program: come as often as you want to, don’t worry if you miss. (We recommend bringing a change of shoes as the grass is often wet in the mornings)

How can parents be involved?

• Come exercise with us! Working out with others in the morning is a great way to start the day.

• Help when you can. There is always a need for parent help, especially when helping students track their laps for the day.
