Morning Movers at Folwell Elementary

This year at Folwell Elementary, students have the opportunity to get some exercise every morning with our new Morning Movers program. It's like a circuit training for kids. Led by parents and community members five days a week, about a 3rd of our school gathers together in the gym every morning and gets fit together. All grades are welcome to work and sweat with us, making our bodies strong and gearing up our minds for the day!

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Surveying students, we're seeing a climb in the self-reported happiness of students who are voluntarily participating in Morning Movers.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Meeting with our steering team, planning with parents, and asking student input on what exercises and activities we do.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Together, the students and adults involved exercise with one another and encourage each other to do their best.
