Join the 100 Mile Club at Candalaria!
What is it?
The 100 Mile Club is a year-long, fun and social way to get your kids moving! Club participants meet at the Covered Area behind the school every Tuesday and Friday immediately after school. Participants sign in and then run or walk around the track for 50 minutes. Every time the child completes a lap he or she will receive a popsicle stick. At 4:20, students will again gather in the covered area to stretch and have their sticks counted. Students will be ready for pick-up at 4:30.
Students will receive prizes at the 25, 50, 75, and 100 mile mark. We understand that not every student will reach 100 miles, but we hope that all of our students will become healthier as they live a more active lifestyle.
We expect that participating students sign in and out each time they come to the club meeting. Once students sign in, they are expected to walk or run around the track. They are not allowed to go to the playground unless a parent has signed them out.
Weather and Water
The 100 Mile Club will meet every Tuesday and Friday that school is in session. We will run in the rain so have your child be prepared. Also, please make sure that your child has a water bottle. This is especially important when it’s hot.
The joining fee for the 100 Mile Club is $10. This covers the cost of the prizes--including the T-shirt that students will receive if they complete 25 miles. Scholarships are available upon request.
