From this week’s Hodag Pride….as part of a healthy initiative, Northwoods Community Elementary School (NCES) students participate in a “Mileage Club” during recess time. Students check out a pedometer and choose to run, walk or just play. They record their mileage and at the end of each quarter, the “Top Milers” are awarded with a certificate and the honors of their names being added to the “Top Milers” Award Board, which is displayed in the entryway of the school. If their record is not beaten in the next quarter, their names stay up.
“Top Milers” for 3rd Quarter include 4Ker William Reynolds, Kindergartener Tessa Baker, 1st Grader Hunter Bell, 2nd Grader Brooke Lawton, 3rd Grader Noah Bell, 4th Grader Hunter Lawton, 5th Grader Tes Shrader.
As a school goal, students are trying to “Walk to Disney”, which is approximately 1500 miles. When that goal is reached, students will participate in a “Disney” themed celebration day.
