Exercise Across America

Every Friday when the weather permits, students at Centerville Elementary participate in Exercise Across America.

The students can run, jog, or walk around the cones on the playgroud during their specials time. Each lap they make is 280 feet. We keep track of how many laps are done by stamping each students hand as they come by. At the end of every Friday, Coach Z tallies up all the laps and sees how far the Centerville Cheetahs have "exercised across America".

We start the year in Garland and at each city we reach, we learn something interesting about that city (how big it is, what colleges are there, famous sports franchises, etc.). Some of the stops have been: Nashville, Green Bay, Detroit, Mackinaw City, and Pittsburgh. Each week students try to make it to the next big city!
