The Mini Milers program consists of a ten-week program that enables Vermont youth to learn and practice fitness, good nutrition, citizenship, helping hands and goal setting, all while having fun and being safe. Children meet weekly with Mini Milers leaders to get motivated, interact with others and work towards learning the education components of the program. With the help of their leader, each participant tracks their mileage, while earning incentives as they strive towards the goal of accumulating the distance of a marathon distance or beyond. In addition to mileage incentives, t-shirt, medal and finisher's certificate, participants receive monthly e-letters filled with ideas, citizen challenges and tasty recipes. The cost is $35 per participant and scholarships are available. This program is open to all students in grades K-5. The program will meet Thursdays, from 3:00-4:00, starting on April 6. Snacks will be provided! Registration forms are available from Mandi in Burlington Kids, or from Ms. Clopton or Ms. Rebekah.For more information or to register online, visit: http://www.runvermont.org/youth/ready-set-run/

Mandi Harris | Site Director, Flynn Elementary School, BurlingtonKids, Burlington, Vermont
Being a superhero in the field of afterschool means that you have to be strong with a variety of groups of people, not just the kids. When we read the submission about Mandi Harris, it was obvious that management, coworkers, and parents are big fans as well! Here's just a bit of what they had to say.
"The afterschool Site Director role is challenging and Mandi does it with commitment, grace and enthusiasm. It requires a great deal of balance between the relationship building and administrative management, which Mandi clearly recognizes. I have been tremendously impressed by Mandi's professionalism and skills that she displays with everyone she interacts with whether it is a challenging student, a family member, school staff, or one of her own staff members."—Christy Gallese, Director of Expanded Learning Opportunities
"Mandi is a great leader for the Flynn afterschool team. She has set expectations high for staff and supports them to meet and exceed those expectations. She holds herself to those same expectations and leads by example."—A staff member
"Mandi is awesome. She is always positive and shows caring and concern where it applies. I can't say enough how much my daughter cares for her!" —A parent
