Teachers know when The Daily Mile works best for their class. Doing The Daily Mile every day gives the best results, but a minimum of three times a week still sees an impact. Consider doing The Daily Mile when students need to burn off excess energy, are having trouble focusing, or before difficult subject matters or lessons. The Daily Mile is the perfect time to reconnect with your students.
Please continue to keep our students happy, active, and healthy by participating in The Daily Mile!
