Monday Mile Meet
175 participants (parents, students, grandparents, etc.) at our last monthly Monday Mile Meet came to walk/jog together as a family for one hour in our gym. The community loves this event and looks forward to the next one.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

The community looks forward to the monthly walk/jog club and participation has increased each month. We just completed fundraising for an outdoor track which is being built as we speak. Next month we will outdoors on our new track due to the support of our community.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students invited their parents, and both worked together to make it to the events, and then they encouraged each other to run instead of walk the entire time. It was nice seeing them work together as they visited and talked.

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

I plan to continue this monthly event for as long as my parents support it. I am hoping other schools will see the improvement and and implement such an event at their school.
