Prairie Trail Movement Club

We are introducing a Movement Club after school for students in 4th and 5th grades that want to either walk or jog with teachers after school. We hope to build on the participation this year to include more students next year. We have some students that are not comfortable jogging, so those want to walk have that option. If these students feel successful, then they will be likely to be more active in their P.E. class, recess and with their families. Several of our teachers have volunteered their time after school to help mentor and encourage our students to stay active and and have fun. I hope this will be the foundation for other activities for other students and teachers to work together to promote a healthy lifestyle.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

We had teachers volunteer their time and students that committed to showing up after school. This will allow time for the students and teachers to build relationships as well as become role models for these students.
