MONTECITO, Calif. - Dozens of students are hard at work and they are having fun well before the first bell rings at Montecito Union School.
On Tuesday and Friday mornings kids are running laps on the school track as part of the new Mustangs Mileage Club.
School officials feel it's a great way for the students to begin the day and it sets them up to be successful in the classroom.
Students enjoy running with their friends and family members.
Each kid has a card and scans it after each lap. At the end of the school year they will total up the laps and the students will receive recognition and prizes for their efforts.
