Students who are interested, come out after school to the blacktop and run on Thursdays from 3:40 to 4:00! We started out slow with low numbers, but have really begun to see an improvement in participation and occasionally have a teacher or two come join in the exercise fun.

How did you accomplish your goals?

I made announcements during classes and on morning announcements to get the kids interested.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The teachers really helped me in promoting the club, as we as a campus were trying to get more clubs up and running. It was usually the students and me running after school.

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

It has slowed down through the winter, because many kids didn't want to stay after school and run during cold weather. We also had to cancel because of bad weather days. As it gets warmer, I suspect it will become very popular once again.
