- Physical Activity Participation
Our SWAT team saw a need to have more physical activities offered at lunchtime. Previously, there was a small courtyard that students could play in, however only a handful of students played. The SWAT team suggested offering play equipment to students at lunch and asking a teacher to supervise the basketball courts. This was quickly started and we saw a dramatic increase in the number of students being active at lunch time. Students were playing basketball and soccer on the courts on a daily basis, during all three lunches (6th grade, 7th grade & 8th grade lunch). Way to go SWAT Team, so many students have enjoyed this at our school and are healthier because of it!
