We Can All Play 60!
In September, our Wellness Council helped to plan a school wide introduction to Flag Football. We advertised and campaigned to our students and teachers for an outing that would get all students moving for part of their school day. Our football field was filled with students as we warmed up, went through dynamic stretch lines, and broke into groups to play Flag football. The students had a great time learning to work together in their Flag teams, which they created, and then used plays they put together to compete in a bracket tournament for a grade level champion. We had so much laughter; our students had a great time time and we added lots of movement minutes to their day. Success!

How did you accomplish your goals?

Our goal was to introduce the concept of Flag Football Games as well as get more minutes of movement in the school day. We did both really well and are planning a second event in the spring.
