Walkers' Retreat

Physical Activity Participation

We encourage students to walk 20 minutes every morning. We have a retreat every Friday for those who walked laps around Holgate campus in the morning and checked in Monday through Thursday. The retreat is games in the gym from 7:30 to 7:50. This has been a great success in increasing the number of students who walk in the morning before school.

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

This Play will easily be able to be carried out as it only requires one or two adults to supervise the gym and set out equipment for the students to play. The games are easy to set up and require little equipment.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

The number of students that want to walk every day has more than doubled since we started the game day on Fridays

How did you accomplish your goals?

This goal was accomplished by word of mouth and signs put up around the walking path.
