Holy Coyotes

We have started an after school program for our students. They come every Monday and Thursday for an hour and participate in Physical Activities. We were overwhelmed at the amount of participants and that the number just keeps growing each time. We have over 120 kids participating. We are so excited that we have students who enjoy being physically active and that we can give them this opportunity!

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

Since we were overwhelmed at the amount of students who showed up to our after-school program, we were not organized for the numbers. We worked with the 8th grade to create stations that the students would rotate to and we asked for teacher volunteers.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

We had a few meetings before starting the after school program with 8th grade students who showed an interest in a leadership role. These students organized a month full of activities for the younger students.

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

We plan on continuing the after-school program throughout the year, meeting every Monday and Thursday. We also hope to create field trip opportunities such as visiting ropes courses, trampoline parks, and rock walls.
