Walk Across Texas: Complete

To augment our 100 Mile Club, Sam Rayburn Elementary participated in Walk Across Texas. Each grade level was challenged to walk the length of Texas, or 833 miles, in 8 weeks. As a school, our students walked a total of 19,946 miles in 8 weeks! We counted student participation in physical education classes and sent home forms for students to log bonus miles completed at home. Three teacher teams also competed to see who could get the most mileage; the 23 teachers who participated in the competition walked a total of 5,297 miles!

What improvements have you seen at your school?

The students and faculty have enjoyed the team atmosphere and the challenge of Walk Across Texas. Many students completed bonus miles at home, further increasing their physical activity level.
