Physical Activity Participation

This year, I started this school's first morning club ever. What made it even better is that it was a Run Club. The students were very hesitant to run in the mornings, at first, but as time went on, and students started to see how much more awake and alert they were during the school day, they began to love going. Not only is this morning social time for the students, but the students are enjoying being able to move and be physical in the mornings instead of sitting in the cafeteria waiting to go to class and sit some more.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

I have noticed students' behavior has decreased with the students that attend morning run club. I have also noticed students are wanting to run more in class and at recess instead of sit somewhere. Students are wanting to be physically active, just many are looking to find avenues they enjoy. I found my runners and my students found enjoyment in running.
