Physical Activity Participation

Both students and staff participated. Kickoff was during Cougar Pride Assembly with myself introducing the Challenge to the students. Teachers were introduced during a previous Staff meeting. Teachers were asked for suggestions for the Challenge. One suggestion was to play Star Wars music throughout the day so that teachers would use that signal to stop what they are doing and do some form of brain break. Due to the many different schedules in the building, we decided to just start each days’ announcement with the Star Wars theme music and allow teachers to incorporate Brain Breaks as they fit into their schedules.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

The brain breaks challenge was eye-opening to many teachers and other staff members as they saw the positive impact it had on their students' learning. It has become much more common practice in our building.
