100 Mile Club

No written word,
No spoken plea,
Can teach our youth what they must be
Nor all the books on all the shelves
It’s what the teachers are themselves

Description: 100 Mile Inspiration from one of the best!

 

The 100 Mile Club® is a life skills program. The life skills for The 100 Mile Club® are based on The Pyramid of Success, created by legendary basketball coach and close family friend, Coach John Wooden. Through the personal experience of running (or walking) 100 miles at school, each person is given unique situations in which to truly experience each and every one of the life skills outlined in The Pyramid of Success.

May Ranch’s 100 Mile Club will be starting in September for the 2016-2017 school year!  Last year, we had over 200 students and parents participating.  We are excited to see how many miles we will run this year. 

Please contact Mrs. Arciaga at earciaga@valverde.edu if you have any other questions, comments or concerns.
