Aberdeen is on the Move!!

Aberdeen has been working to increase the amount of physical activity students are participating in daily. With the help of competitions established by our Program Advisor and a GoNoodle Plus subscription, we have been tracking our physical activity minutes. In September, students added an additional 9.4 minutes of physical activity to their school day!! Ms. B's first grade class has the PAB trophy for the month of October; they participated in 62 physical activity breaks during the month of September!! Woohoo!!

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

We have a monthly challenge in place as part of the Physical Activity Breaks Program Initiative at our school. Coach D is working really hard on this project this year as part of her research project to complete her Masters in Public Health.

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

Some classes were upset because they were not able to participate in the GoNoodle program due to technical difficulties. We encouraged them to jump on board for October and track extra minutes of PA, even if it's with GoNoodle.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Faculty and staff training on the program and consistent encouragement for everyone to get involved!
