Physical Activity Participation
This after school program is designed to promote physical activity outside of the school day. Students may participate in this elective, after school walking/running program offered each Wednesday afternoon. Students begin with a whole group warm-up, followed by walking/running and other small group activities, closing with cool down activities and a review of healthy eating habits. Students are encouraged to help us reach our goal of walking/running to Disney World in Florida. Various staff volunteer their time to help make the program successful.

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

Since this is a voluntary program, we are hoping to continue the program next year. Receiving monetary support via the Fuel Up grant has helped provided the after school snack component for the HKC, for which we are grateful. With the support of administration and staff, and well as the willingness of students to participate and parents to support, it is felt that this program may be able to continue next year. Support may need to be elicited from our PTO as well.
