Walk and Talk Wednesdays
On Wednesdays, during  ten o'clock break, our 6th to 8th graders can come to the gym to Walk and Talk with friends and listen to music. They have been able to request songs to hear, which I have checked out ahead of time. By showing up and walking, they are entered into attendance drawings. I will draw a few names each month and give gift cards to local businesses. They are enjoying getting a chance to move with friends!

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

We will continue to have Walk -n- Talk Wednesdays for 6-8th graders because they do not get as many recesses as our younger grades do.
