Physical Activity for All

Physical Activity Participation

As a school, we believe in promoting physical activity among students and staff. During 4th period or lunch period, all classes either have 15-20 minutes of recess or walking time. This has been a great way for students to get a little physical activity in during their school day, outside of their P.E class. It has helped them feel better about themselves and has encouraged them to be more active.

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

The teachers have incorporated this in their daily routines and schedules. The teachers enjoy this time just as much as the students, as it improves the teacher/student relationship.

How did you accomplish your goals?

The principals of our school held a staff meeting, informing the teachers they were to incorporate physical activity within the school day. They made sure everyone was on board with this.
