The Merriam Milers! (Merriam’s brand new exercise club!) NEW START DATE – WEDNESDAY, MAY 8th!

We are very excited to announce a new exercise club, The MERRIAM MILERS, which will convene on Merriam’s back playground on Wednesday mornings from 8:00 – 8:35 beginning on May 8th! Each Wednesday morning, students will run or walk (or jog or skip or shuffle!) around a designated path. As they complete laps, students will track their mileage, and they will be awarded tokens as they reach certain milestone distances. All Merriam students (as well as parents) are invited to join in and get moving before the school day starts!

In order to make this club happen we do need a little help. We are looking for at least four more parents who are able to commit to helping on Wednesday mornings. Responsibilities include helping students check in and out, as well as monitoring the route students are walking on. Please contact Amanda Ragusa or Denise Lapierre if you are interested in volunteering and would like more information!
