Gilbert PK-8 has started a morning walking program for grades 5-8 before school starts. When students arrive at school, they go straight to the gym and briskly walk for 20 minutes daily. Students track their steps and record them weekly. This has improved disciplinary problems and participation in the morning breakfast program.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

We have seen fewer disciplinary problems occur before school starts and have seen tremendous improvement in participation of students now eating breakfast.
