Eat This, Not That
Our Leadership Team chose to train students on healthy snacks and give a wellness challenge each month. For September, they chose to challenge the school to run/walk 2 laps on our track every Wednesday. We had 80% of our classes participate. During October, they challenged the school to run/walk as many laps as they could and wear pink on Friday's during October. Novembers challenge is "Eat This, Not That". The students are challenging the school to chose a healthy option for your classroom snack. The students are making posters to hang in the school and will be on the announcements with the challenge.

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

Each month, we have a different challenge issued to our school. Every other month, we involve the parents in our activity.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

We have a board with the points for each class outside the gym. The students love seeing their class points and enjoy the challenges
