Virtual Barton Mileage Club Station

Welcome to the Barton Mileage Club! A wellness program that helps each of us increase our daily physical activity and reduce our carbon footprint. Participants will recognize their daily activity, translate it into ‘Miles Walked’ using the Mega Mileage Equivalency Guide, and record it onto a Barton Mileage Club Card. Things like vacuuming, swimming, hockey, basketball, taking the stairs, and dusting all count! A healthy goal? A minimum of two ‘Miles Walked’ per day. Each card records 50 miles - fill it up and get a new one! The goal is to develop a sustainable, active lifestyle while reducing our impact on the environment.

We hope you’ll participate. Begin by simply starting a Barton Mileage Club Card! Return completed cards to school and every week the mileage coordinators will add up how far the entire Barton community has ‘walked’ and how much fuel we’ve saved. Updated totals will be posted on the big US Map at the new Barton Mileage Station across from the school office. Can we make it to Florida by Spring? Let’s see how far we can go!

Congratulations movers and shakers! You have added another 470 miles making our grand total equal 2622 ‘miles walked’! We are in the mid-Atlantic ocean steering a course to the western coast of Africa. Which port city should we head for? Go to, read about the western port cities/countries, then send your vote to Keep moving, converting, and tracking – let’s get to Africa by the end of the school year!
