Before-School Run/Walk Club
- JESSICA SHAWLEY, Moscow Middle High School
- Physical Activity Participation
We implemented a before-school run/walk program to promote physical activity before school to help support learning readiness and to increase the amount of physical activity during the students' school day. Our pilot program met twice per week in the spring semester and had over 100 students participating at some point, including a core regular group of 30 students. Students tracked their laps and attendance to earn participation awards. It was a well-received program and we plan to expand it this next year to become a year-long club.
