Physical Activity Participation

We started a running club to prepare for a district 5K. Our students met every Monday and will be completing the race this coming Saturday. Students had never run a mile before, let alone over 3 miles. It has been quite a ride and a blast to watch 40 elementary students take an interest in and enjoy running!

How did you accomplish your goals?

Yes! Student goals increased each week with our ending goal being 3 miles.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

Weather, tired students and timeframe. It is difficult when you see them once a week, but we made it work and students met goals!

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

We will have a running club every year!
