Get Up and Move!

Our Fuel Up to Play 60 team has helped organize a walking time for all students through the day. Students get a chance to do a walk and talk to start their day. Then also they helped implement a two-lap run for recess. It doesn't matter if they run or walk their laps at recess. The team also has helped organized a Walk-a-thon.

How did you accomplish your goals?

We got this accomplished by everyone on our wellness team, FUTP 60 team, PTA team and teachers all working together and adjusting to new things.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students are fired up more to go to recess and get their laps done and get free choice time in.

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

We had some challenges by some students not wanting to participate and complete their laps and would just not do them. Then once they figured out that it didn't take much to get them done they started to embrace the laps.
