Physical Activity Participation
Last year was the first year that we participated in Marathon Kids, so the interest was so-so. As the year went on, and the athletes that were on the team started to earn rewards and become more enthused about physical activity, the buzz started to spread through the school. It was such an exciting feeling to know that not only our students were starting to get the bigger picture, but so was our entire community! This year, school could barely get rolling before more and more kids started asking, "How can I join the Marathon Kids Running Club?" Thanks Marathon Kids and Fuel Up to Play 60! This year we expect to double our last years' team in size and run our way to success, both in the classroom and on the field!

What improvements have you seen at your school?

I have seen an uptick of students desiring to play! Many of those students were motivated by the athletes that were on the team. I'm really excited for what is to come this school year. Play Hard, Live Long! Go Dolphins!!
