Thanks to a grant from the Active Schools Acceleration Project, Oak Hill Elementary students are participating in the 100 Mile Club®. This program provides the opportunity to run or walk 100 miles at school during recess, which improves school readiness to learn, creates better educational outcomes, building self-esteem and the overall health in the lives of children and others. Students are rewarded for reaching milestones, with incentives of t-shirts, pencils, and bracelets. When they reach the 100 mile milestone, they will be awarded a special medal at the end of the year. Currently, 62 OHES students are enrolled in the program.
Pictured (L-R) are Hayden Coon, Brianna Moore, Evan Davison, and Gunner Shephard who are Oak Hill Elementary students. During the 2012-2013 school year they created the winning artwork for the school-issued agendas for the 2013-2014 school year. Great job kids!
