Moving Kids Do Better

We started the 100 Mile Club this year. I have my 5th graders running the program. They are teaching the young students how to walk and be healthy and keep track of all the students miles. I have a student that took the lead and is great at running the program!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

I explained what I needed done and my leader took charge and made it happen.

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

Every year I have a new 5th grader that wants to continue the program so I teach them and they take control.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

More kids walking and talking and fewer kids are sitting around on the playground benches.
