NRMPS students, staff walk over 75,000 miles
Angie Miller, Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools Healthful Living Coordinator, announced first year results for "Hot Feet in Action," a fitness program created to assist students in the development of positive fitness habits beyond standard physical education classes.

Ms. Miller reported that NRMPS elementary school students and staff far surpassed all goals, walking over 75,000 miles in four months. The pilot program ran from January 2, 2007 through May 4, 2007 challenging each elementary student and teacher to walk daily as part of their 30 minutes of physical activity. The goal for each student and teacher was 55 miles over the four month period.

Nine elementary schools participated in the pilot program. Red Oak Elementary School students and staff walked the most miles and were awarded first place. Middlesex Elementary School followed with a close second and Englewood Elementary School placed third.

1st place - Red Oak Elementary School - 17,865 miles
2nd place - Middlesex Elementary School - 14,640 miles
3rd place - Englewood Elementary School - 10,620 miles*
4th place - Bailey Elementary School
5th place - Nashville Elementary School
6th place - Benvenue Elementary School
7th place - Swift Creek Elementary School
8th place - Cedar Grove Elementary School
9th place - Hubbard Elementary School

Due to the overwhelming success of the program, "Hot Feet in Action" will continue throughout the 2007-2008 school year, beginning in August 2007 and concluding in May 2008.

(Note: Englewood Elementary School has had a year-long walking program sponsored by their PTO. The mileage listed was only for the January - May time frame.)
