DCES Run Club

Play:
Community Playtime – It’s Good for Everyone
Topics:
Community Involvement
David Crockett Elementary teams up with our local state park and also with the Parks and Recreation Department. Teaming up with the state park has allowed us to have a run club that is lead by one of our teachers. The club meets twice a week and trains for marathons. Teaming up with the Parks and Recreation department we are able to share with families the many great activities they have to offer.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students and adults work together in encouraging each other to try new activities. We have found that if the parents will show their child they are interested and supportive that the students will continue to move and be involved.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Our school has teamed up with the state park and parks and recreation department and all of us working together for the success of the students.

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

Our school sends out a newsletter once a month listing available activities taking place. Our run club has a social media account that announces their activities.
