The students at Forest Avenue Elementary School are going the distance this year, thanks to the newly launched Mileage Club. The club began in October and Forest Avenue students have already walked more than 2,000 miles as a school. An outdoor space is sectioned off and classes walk the track twice – for the equivalent of one mile – at an allotted timeslot each day. Students get a stick for every mile completed and receive a token for every five miles. The walks help to increase physical activity while also giving students a break in the day. The school plans to continue the club in the winter months and move the walks indoors.

Forest Avenue Shows Off Its Flexibility

Forest Avenue Elementary School has been piloting a new flexible seating program for students this year. Students are given a choice to work in a space that is most comfortable for them. Flexible seating allows them to wobble, rock, bounce, lean or stand, which increases oxygen flow to the brain, blood flow and core strength. It also helps keep young minds stay more alert and focused. In this kindergarten classroom, students are given a multitude of options from which to choose, including beanbag chairs, scoop rockers, balls, carpet and even a tent.
