Tuesdays and Thursdays during Lunch Recess, students in grades 1-5 are given the opportunity to participate in our Junior Jogger program. To participate, students are given a punch card from their classroom teacher, and then run laps around our “Junior Jogger Track.” After each lap, students are given a punch on their card. Not only are the students rewarded with a healthier mind and body, they are also given prizes after every 10 laps they complete, and after completing a full card, which is 30 laps or 5 miles. After completing 4 cards (120 laps) joggers are given a coupon for a free Smoothie from Jamba Juice. After completing 5 cards (150 laps) they are given a Junior Jogger water bottle. After 6 cards (180 laps) students are rewarded with a Junior Jogger t-shirt and the honor of making it into the Hall of Fame. Students who make it to the Hall of Fame get their picture taken in their new shirt, and this picture
is then hung in the hallway on our Junior Jogger Bulletin Board.
We are so excited to partner this year with Jamba Juice as our heathy food option. Thanks to them, our students are rewarded with a healthy snack to help re-fuel their bodies.
If you are available to come punch cards on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:30-12:30, we would love to have your help. As always, please be sure to have your volunteer paperwork turned in at the office and to check in there first, before heading out to help.
