Morning Challenge Club

Studies show incorporating movement in children's lives will have a positive outcome. Students that are physically active are much more capable of learning, are healthier and emotionally well balanced. Physical activity improves academic achievement, cognitive skills, attitudes and academic behavior. Our campus has decided to incorporate more movement in our students’ lives by having a morning challenge club. Once a month, we change the challenge. Some challenges have been AB challenge, jump rope challenge, and dribbling challenge. We are looking forward to seeing the long term results in our students.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Physical activity improves fitness, helps students burn off excessive energy and increases attention span. Overall students have a better attitude.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

We have a large parent network and all are happy to work together to meet the needs of our students. Parents are willing to drop their child off at school early and students are willing to get up a little earlier to participate in the program. Staff have been exited about seeing the students moving early in the morning and are looking forward to joining us in some of the challenges.
