Fitness Friday

Every Friday, we have "Fitness Friday" to get the kids moving and active. We go from 15-20 minutes and focus on cardio, arms, legs, and core. After their workout, we allow them to have open gym as a reward. We have done HIIT (high intensity interval training) and fun videos like "Pound" (a rock-out workout using drum sticks).

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Every week, a different teacher and their class picks the fitness activity.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Every Thursday, the kids start asking "what are we doing for Fitness Friday?" They have really bought in to the workouts. They are quick and fun and then they are rewarded with open gym.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Our main goal this year is more fitness. It's less about learning the terms and rules of a game and more about movement and having fun while being active.
