Brecknock’s 2nd “Walk to School Day” is this Friday, 9/21

On Friday, September 21, 2012, the school buses will pick up all AM Brecknock students at their regular appointed time & place, but the buses will travel to neighboring Quality Warehouse and drop off students at that location. Then, students will “walk to school” from the Quality Warehouse to Brecknock Elementary School. Brecknock’s staff will be on site to safely escort the students as they walk. There will be no Morning Mile Club on this day.

AM car students need to be dropped off at the scheduled time, but the location for car drop off on this day only has changed! Car students must be dropped off at the front entrance. Signs will be posted & staff will be available to assist with this alternative drop off site.

Thank you for your cooperation in helping to make this healthy endeavor a success!

The Morning Mile Club is coming to Brecknock!

Our physical education teacher, Mrs. Epler, will be coordinating a morning exercise program for Brecknock students during the 2012-13 school year: the Morning Mile Club! We will start the year offering the program to students in grades 3-6.

Breakfast students will be dismissed from the buses at 8:40 AM as usual. We will continue to encourage students who are in need of breakfast to attend breakfast each day. After breakfast students have cleared the buses, bus drivers will dismiss the Morning Milers. They will enter through the main lobby doors and walk through the center hallway to meet Mrs. Epler on the playground.

Starting Monday, September 10, the following groups of students will be invited to join in the “Morning Mile Club” according to the schedule below for the first week of the program:

Monday, September 10 – Grade 6

Tuesday, September 11 – Grade 5

Wednesday, September 12 – Grade 4

Thursday, September 13 – Grade 3

Friday, September 14- Since this is an EVEN day (14th), Grades 4 and 6 will participate in the Morning Mile club.

Monday, September 17 – Since this is an ODD day (15th), Grades 3 and 5 will participate in the Morning Mile club.
Students who join in the fun will be shown the Morning Mile track and be encouraged to walk, run, or jog laps until 8:55 AM, after which they will report directly to homerooms.

Continuing for the rest of the year after September 17, Grades 4 and 6 will report to MMC on even-days, and Grades 3 and 5 will report to MMC on odd-days. We may look to add grades 1 and 2 during the second semester. Stay tuned!

If your child is a car rider and wishes to attend Morning Mile club, please have your child walk to the car drop-off doors and inform Mrs. Hogan that they need entry to the building in order to walk to the playground to meet Mrs. Epler. They should follow the same even/odd days schedule as listed above.

Please encourage your child to take advantage of this opportunity to develop physical fitness and start the day off right!

Please feel free to contact Mrs. Hilt and/or Mrs. Epler with any questions or concerns!
