Hello MPE Families!

We are so excited to bring back the Mills Park Maniacs Program! This is a fun way for your family to get moving and having some fun! Your child will walk, run, skip, or hop 26.1 miles (no bikes).


For every completed mile, you will put a bead on your necklace. There will be a special bead for the 13 mile mark and the 26.1 mile mark. This will be a virtual race except for the last mile. The virtual race will end on Thursday, April 7th.


We will have the children finish the last 1.1 mile at school on Friday, April 8th! Students and staff will be there to cheer the runners on as they finish their last 1.1 mile. There will be more details about this event as we get closer to April 7th! You will start tracking your miles on Monday, February 7th.

The cost for each child will be $10 and includes necklace with beads and an awesome Mills Park Maniac shirt! You can pay on-line through the PTA website. Registration begins on Monday, February 7th and end Thursday, February 17th. Once registration has closed, beads and logs for miles will be sent home. The Maniac t-shirts will be delivered in April in order for the children to wear them at school on April 8th when they do the last 1.1 mile at school.

This is going to be a fun, family event and we cannot wait to have all of our Panthers participate! Lace up those shoes, grab some water, and get ready to move!

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns!

Ms. Cogswell, Mrs. Ingle, Mrs. Huffman, and Mrs. Weirich



The last mile

HEY Mills Park Maniacs Marathon Families!
It is hard to believe we are only two weeks away from our final Maniac Marathon! We hope you have enjoyed getting outside, getting those feet moving, and having fun as you complete your miles!
We will have our final mile on Friday, April 8th at 9:30. The children will be called down by grade level. Parents are more than welcome to come walk/run with your child or cheer your child on. After the race, there will be popsicles and water. Then the children will return to class.
Please be sure to have your child wear their Maniac shirt on race day!
We look forward to seeing everyone on Friday, April 8th!
Ms. Cogswell, Mrs. Ingle, Mrs. Weirich, and Mrs. Huffman
