Start of Our Walk

We started a Walking Club in the mornings before school. Students who wished to participate had up to 20 minutes to walk. We implemented the program after Christmas. Some students walked over 35 miles during this time, which made us very happy. Overall, we had an 85% participation rate. Some students were regular walkers and some were not. We plan on continuing the program next year. We did get a local grant to purchase prizes. We bought some clearance NFL gear given to the kids for participating in the program after they reached a milestone. The milestone were set prior to the beginning of the program.

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

We will start the year off with recognizing our past walkers and will purchase more prizes to give away for the students who do qualify.
