Physical Activity Participation

Students at Holgate get 5-10 minutes of open gym after lunch to get some extra physical activity that as middle school students usually don't, as they go from recess in elementary school to nothing in middle school. Students can choose basketball, volleyball, 4 square, or walking for their activity.

How did you accomplish your goals?

This was actually our principal's idea so having the support of administration is definitely a positive.

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

This has been received so well by both the students and lunchroom supervisors that it is a sure thing to happen the remainder of the year and for years to come.
