Running and Walking for Success
We encouraged students to run or walk during recess to increase energy and bloodflow to the brain! Students have enjoyed using their recess time to get active!

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

We are using PE time and recess time as well as morning drop off time to get kids active. We celebrate students who accumulate the most miles each time we take the kids out to run/walk!

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

Sometimes the weather does not cooperate, but we have also used the gym during morning hours to get kids active and running or walking.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students look forward to running/walking time and are eager to be the top runner of the day!
