MMS Awarded Fitness Center

🎉 Exciting News for Milton Middle School! 🎉

We are thrilled to announce that our school has been recognized as one of Vermont's most outstanding schools for promoting fitness and keeping our students active and healthy. Governor Phil Scott and fitness icon Jake (Body by Jake) Steinfeld, chairman of the National Foundation for Governors' Fitness Councils, have selected our school to receive a state-of-the-art $100,000 DON'T QUIT! Fitness Center!

It's a testament to the hard work and dedication of our students, teachers, and staff that we have been chosen for this incredible opportunity. We believe in the importance of encouraging our youth to embrace healthy lifestyles, and this fitness center will have a huge impact on their well-being.

We want to express our gratitude to Governor Phil Scott for his support and commitment to the health of our children.

These state-of-the-art fitness centers are made possible through public/private partnerships with companies like The Coca-Cola Company, Elevance Health Foundation, and Nike, without relying on taxpayer dollars or state funding. Fit Supply will provide top-notch fitness equipment.

We cannot wait to unveil our new DON'T QUIT! Fitness Center. It will be an exciting moment for our entire school community!

We encourage you to visit the National Foundation for Governors' Fitness Councils website at for more information about their mission and the fantastic work they do.

Let's continue to inspire our students to embrace an active and healthy lifestyle. Together, we can build a nation of the fittest, healthiest kids in the world!
