"Walking Club" starts students' day off right

Fuel up to play 60 program promotes physical activity

December 15, 2014

Chase Elementary's physical education teacher Mrs. Coney is on the move!

Every morning she is joined by children and teachers who walk with her around the building, hoping to meet their goal of walking one mile every day. Their mileage counts towards the 100 Mile Cub, part of the "Fuel Up to Play 60" initiative designed to promote physical activity. Studies show that physical activity helps children focus and be more ready to learn throughout the day, and Mrs. Coney is doing her part to make sure Chase students make the most of every school day.
