Holmes is Moving Inside and Outside!

Topics:
Physical Activity Participation,  Success with Funds
Funds this year really helped our school K-5 get moving more. We enjoyed utilizing funds to help motivate students with banners in the hallways and incentives for participating in wellness challenges, in class prizes for movement breaks and a school wide fitness night. Students were able to gain materials to add to our outdoor activities and most exciting, we were able to add to classroom inside recess activities. We purchased games and activities that will keep kids moving and not be sedentary. Alternative seating was also purchased to help those who need alternate seating to focus their learning. It was so much fun to work with the wellness committee and help our students move. We tried to be creative in helping students enjoy school, move their bodies and be successful!

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

We tried to purchase multiple items that can be used in all grades and year to year. We want staff and students to continue to move and be excited about it.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students are excited to move and don't moan and groan!
