Physical Activity Participation
At Holgate we have a Walking Club, where kids come in the morning and walk for 20 minutes before school starts. It is right off of the lunchroom, so they are encouraged to have a healthy breakfast first. We walk and listen to music and students get a chance to visit with friends before school. On Fridays, for everyone who walked all week, we play a big game like Mat Ball (like kick ball with a twist) There are an average of 100 walkers.

How did you accomplish your goals?

This gets kids moving because otherwise, they would just be sitting in a commons area until the bell rang
