WalkDay

 

On fair weather days, Kindergarten students will compete by walking, jogging, and/or running ¼ mile laps on the field to improve their cardiovascular health. Students’ individual laps will be recorded on their hand with a permanent marker and then converted into miles to earn toe-tokens (one for every 20 laps). We will keep a record of class laps.  Adult family members are invited and encouraged to come and walk with their child as their laps will double for the class competition. Adults must first check in at the front desk and then record their laps in the gym. If the weather is poor we will remain indoors, and each child will receive an average of (4) laps. Each nine weeks we will recognize a boy and girl from each class that has the most laps as well as the class with the most laps per grade level. The class with the most laps gets to keep a trophy in their room for a month or until another class earns more laps.  At the end of the year, the top boy and top girl  will be recognized per grade level.
