Running late to school? At Summit School of Ahwatukee kids are simply running for fun and fitness. The before school running club often has more than 60 preschool through eighth-grade kids on any one day, who voluntarily show up at 7:45 a.m., to run and walk with their friends. This is the second year for this kid favorite program; led by Kathy Dean, M.A., Summit' physical education teacher and the past president of the Arizona Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AzAHPERD). Summit is one of 5,200 schools participating in AAHPERD's nation-wide program called "Let's move in school," which strives to increase kids' physical activity before, during and after school, thus enhancing their ability to learn.
