Elementary Students Get Great Mileage

Meet some of the members of the ACS Mileage Club. These students have one goal in mind – to run as many miles as possible during PE class, after school, or at special school events. For each mile they complete, they are rewarded with a brightly colored charm in the shape of a foot from Athletic Director Pam Hitchner to wear proudly on a chain around their neck. Mrs. Hitchner started the Mileage Club ten years ago and it quickly caught on. Students can start earning their charms in kindergarten and can add to their collection each year through the 5th grade. Some club members have earned over 30 charms. Pictured below are a group of students who earned new charms for the miles they ran recently during the Race for Education.  What a great and fun way to encourage the health and fitness of our elementary students.
