Physical Activity Participation

This Play was so good for our school and it really got more kids out and moving than we have ever had before. As a total school we walked/ran over 4,500 miles! We are going to keep working on this Play next year, and have expanded our walking path area so that the new route is all on hardtop. Now everyone can participate. We also plan to request Funds for an electronic tracking system for next year to make it easier on everyone to log the miles of each child, class, and the entire school. We are also planning on having a set 10 minutes every day for the entire school to go out and walk.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

By expanding this challenge from individual to class we really got more students participating, as well as the teachers. They knew that every lap counted towards their class making their goal.
