    One of our great traditions at Starkey Elementary is our morning exercise program, Starkey Strollers.

    This program was started years ago by the student council as a way to promote a healthy

    lifestyle in our community. Students walk or run laps on our track to get their blood pumping and earn

    prizes and recognition.  ALL STUDENTS are invited to carry on the tradition by walking before school

    at the Diane S. Stern Strolling Park (our track). 

    Beginning Wednesday, August 30th, students will be able to stroll according to their grades:

    • Monday and Wednesday: 3rd,  4th, & 5th grades
    • Tuesday and Thursday: Kinder, 1st, & 2nd grades

    Times: 7:15am-7:30am


    • Students who arrive after 7:25 are NOT allowed
    • to begin strolling that day.
    • Students must eat breakfast BEFORE strolling.
    • They will not be able to go to the cafeteria for
    • breakfast after they walk. No exceptions.
    • They must use their Starkey Stroller cards to
    • record their laps.


    • Students will earn a prize and have their name
    • called on announcements for every 13.1 miles
    • strolled (6 laps on our track = 1 mile) 
    • The top three Strollers frome ach grade level

    Let's Go, Starkey Strollers!!
