Welcome to another fantastic year at Pilot Knob STEM Magnet School!  As we begin the new school year, we would like to introduce you to The 100 Mile Club.

100 mile club


The 100 Mile Club was started 20 years ago by Kara Lubin, a teacher in the Corona-Norco Unified School District.  100 Mile Club is now a non-profit organization whose sole mission is to provide to all individuals the opportunity to experience fitness and TRUE personal success by accepting the challenge of running (or walking) 100 miles at school during a single school year.  Students use and experience life skills based on The Pyramid of Success, designed by legendary basketball coach and 100 mile Club supporter, Coach John Wooden.

We have accepted the Challenge, and we are so excited!  Starting on Monday, September 22nd, participants will go out to the playground, stretch out, and run a little bit.  The miles and love for running begin to build almost instantly!  When your child reaches 25 and 50 miles, s/he will be presented with a fantastic prize.

Through the journey toward 100 miles, your child will practice personal goal setting, team spirit, perseverance, poise, confidence, and honest self-evaluation.  As your child reaches other "mile"stones, we all celebrate together.  When your child reaches 100 miles, he or she will be awarded with another fantastic prize.  At the end of the school year all students will receive a special certificate acknowledging the miles they have accomplished.

Please visit www.100mileclub.com, or contact Mrs. Tichy for more information about the program.  We look forward to celebrating your child's accomplishments both on the track and in the classroom.  See you on the field!
