Making Great Strides!
Our running club chose to participate in Marathon Kids this year. This program gave our students goals and rewards that are motivating and obtainable. Our running club meets on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 7:25-7:40. Due to weather interruptions, our kiddos have participated on alternative days to help ensure their goals are met. I am proud of these kiddos!

How did you accomplish your goals?

Our students are consistently meeting when the weather allows, as well as meeting on alternative days. The students are getting close to meeting their first marathon distance! We will continue to meet and work toward our goals!

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

We will continue this play through the end of May. We will add additional days as needed to help ensure their goals are met. The program has been very motivating for the students. Our campus plans to continue this program during the 2017-2018 school year.

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

The Marathon Kids offered a grant to cover the fees involved with registering the participants. To help include all students who would like to join, we applied for a grant. Our campus was given the grant which did allow all students interested in the program to join. The rewards has provided great motivation for our students.
