Degan Walkabout
Some students made a Walkabout Club along with our art teacher. The students meet every Friday, which is our club day. The students and teacher walk for 60 minutes around the neighborhood and school. While they are on their walkabout, they pick up trash around the school and surrounding neighborhood. They learn about safety and keep the school grounds and surrounding community looking beautiful. All while getting exercise and having great conversations!

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

This Play is every Friday. It has been like this for the entire year.

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

Weather was a challenge but we always found a way to walk inside or outside for the entire 60 minutes.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

These wonderful students keep the school and surrounding neighborhood looking beautiful.
