Physical Activity Participation

Our school, Lakemont Elementary, has a year-round club that meets for thirty minutes every Wednesday morning before school. We have students, their parents, and even younger siblings (not in school yet) come to our school track and start the day with some healthy walking. Some weeks, there are only 20 walkers, and other weeks, it has gone up to over 50 people. It is fantastic to see families walking and getting their health on.

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

We will continue to offer this weekly walking club as we are making a difference with so many students and their families.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

The only challenges are the weather and getting parents to bring their children to school early.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Parents and teachers are being healthy and walking together around the track.
