Physical Activity Assembly

Oak Park students have been working on adding physical activity to their monthly assemblies. Chris Reif, a motivational speaker and basketball skills trainer, came to work with Oak Park! We learned to activate our muscles and our brains to be successful at school. The students were able to get up, dribble, practice some basketball push-ups, and collaborate with their peers.

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

We have set up our assemblies all year to include physical activity and skill building. We are working on a grant to get more physical activities after school for all students to participate.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

We have the Panda Pack, which is a group of student leaders who work with teachers and students on improvements to our school's culture.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

The Panda Pack is helping to drive the motivation with students and staff to stay physically fit.
