Sem Elementary - GOLDEN SHOES
- Gail Percle, Isabel Pierce Sem Elementary School
- Community Involvement, Teamwork
Our goal was to encourage students and parents to walk or bike to school more often. Sem Elementary's Wellness Council (with includes teachers, parents and students) planned a monthly Walk/Bike to School Day - the first Wednesday of every month. Each month was assigned a theme: wear red, crazy socks, hat day. The PE department provided chalk for students that walked or biked to sign their name on the sidewalk in front of the school. Students from the Wellness Council tally the students from each grade level that participated and the winning grade level won the "Golden Shoes" for the month. The grade level with the most "Golden Shoes" award will win a Dance Party at the end of the year.
