We kicked-off the 2017 Movin' & Groovin' Walkathon
on Friday at Assembly, with each grade showing off various activities and games they had learned in Movement Class. Mr. Lucas's class even serenaded us with homemade kazoos. Now it's time to start racking up those miles!
Any activity that gets you moving counts towards a mile - jump-rope, hula hoop, biking, hiking, climbing and more. Even housework, such as sweeping and mopping counts. So, for example, mop the floors of your house for 15 minutes and you've run a mile! Participants find sponsors and work towards a goal of "running a marathon," or completing 26.2 miles of activity.
We'll all do the Final Mile together at the school on April 28. Afterward, any participant who has raised $200 in pledges gets to throw a pie in a teacher's face!
