Physical Activity Participation

Our students keep track of how far they go every month and write their mileage on the Wall of Fame for Mileage Club. We give opportunities to walk before school once a week, during recess, and during PE time. We have a .5 mile track that we use daily.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

We have seen an increased participation of those wanting to be active during recess time instead of sitting under a shade tree.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Classroom teachers helped by allowing students to walk during recess and some teachers even participated with them.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Setting a time and giving students a place to keep track of miles allowed for easy set up and keeping kids motivated.
