ST. IGNATIUS Back in the day the only time a school student could get a break from the classroom was a fire drill. Nowadays experiential learning is big and it takes place outside the classroom.

Last Wednesday, the Mission Middle School student physical education class got a little bit of outside-the-classroom learning as they participated in three-mile fun run. As the name implies it was fun, a fun way to learn what your body and legs can do. And as all track coaches know running is also a large dose of mental.

Sixth grader Jlee Anderson combined body, legs and brain to grab the overall winner prize of a Mission Bulldogs hoodie. Prizes were awarded to the top three girls and boys in each of the three middle school grades, said PE teacher Christie Krantz.
