- Brooke Hempton, Thomas Jefferson Elementary School
- Physical Activity Participation
This school year, Jefferson has established Power Hour, which is a before-school physical activity class. The class has been used as a Tier 2 support for students that need a little more physical activity to help keep them focused and "in the game" during the school day. The class runs every school day for 40 minutes. The 40 minutes is divided up into a 20 minute warm-up activity, 10 minutes of gross motor skill development and ends with 10 minutes of a whole class game or activity. At the conclusion of each class, the participants huddle up with hands in and end with a cheer of "Power Hour Eagles!"
