The goal was to motivate students to increase their level of physical activity outside of physical education class. Physical Education teachers, Anne Seymour and Dawn Turpin-Orgetas coordinated a plan to challenge Oak Grove and Kinry Road students, staff members, and their families to compete in a contest to see which school could do the most walking over the ten day period from October 11 to 20. The totals after ten days were Oak Grove 10,035 miles compared to Kinry’s 9,068 miles. Oak Grove had 195 students/teachers/staff turn in their walking logs. Kinry Road Elementary had 124 students/teachers/staff turn in their walking logs. Those forms contributed an average of 55 miles per day to the each school’s total. Shoe lace tokens were distributed during P.E. classes to all students who turned in a family walking log forms. The championship trophy is on display at Oak Grove Elementary School this year. Thank you to everyone who participated in this fun event.
