Fitness Week at Warren

We did several activities during the week. We (Warren's SWAT team) led PE for every teacher in the school throughout the week. We provided food samples two times a week. We also had health tips daily and random brain breaks. On Friday we had 10 different physical stations. It was a HUGE success.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

We had incredible teamwork. SWAT worked as a team, but on Friday there was an adult with one SWAT member. They supported each other in the activities.

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

I did not receive all the equipment we ordered, but there is one thing that I know what to do as a teacher and that is be on your toes. We chanted some of the games around, and all came up with ideas.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

I have seen the school recognize the SWAT team and myself. I have students coming to me asking when we can do a brain break.
