JOHNS CREEK, Ga. A typical school day for some students at Wilson Creek Elementary School contains more than just the three Rs.

Physical education teacher David Conner is sponsoring an early morning Cardio Club for fourth- and fifth-grade students. The Cardio Club is a voluntary seven-week exercise program that follows the "Couch to 5K" guidelines. More than 40 students participate in the club.

Three mornings a week, before the sun is up and the first school bell rings, students arrive at the Wilson Creek gymnasium to alternate walking with jogging and running for 35 minutes. Research studies have demonstrated that exercise increases mental acuity, boosts attention and motivation and helps manage behavior problems. On average, the positive results continue for four to 10 hours after exercising, carrying students through the entire school day.
