Physical Activity Participation,  Teamwork
One of our students trying to earn a Foot Token, in the Mile Club, with the help of his two friends encouraging him at recess to practice running to build up endurance in order to achieve his goal.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Two students asked if they could run at recess with another student to help him earn a Foot Token. Normally, Foot Tokens are only earned during P.E. Class in the Mile Club. Their homeroom teacher and the P.E. Coaches agreed to this arrangement.

How did you accomplish your goals?

The students were allowed to practice at recess together.

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

By these three students setting this example we encourage other students not to limit physical activity /goals to P.E. class, but any time the opportunity presents itself.
