SACS Walking Challenge Kickoff  TODAY!

Whole School Walking Contest begins April 29 - TODAY!

On Tuesday April 29th we will begin our 6 1/2 week long spring walking contest. There will be a kick-off WALK EVENT with the SACS Band (sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield) and all student participants will receive a pair of sunglasses. 

During the 6 1/2 week contest, any miles walked around school property will be counted. Mileage/laps will be tallied daily by key students or a teacher from your community on clipboards kept at the front lobby desk.  Mitch Craib and Mike Parker will transfer your community's data into a computer spreadsheet and plot the findings.  Results of the contest will be posted weekly in the lobby area and on daily announcements.  The community with the most miles will become the custodian of the golden shoe trophy.  In contrast, the community with the least miles will receive the battered shoe award.

Note: For those of you not associated with a specific community, there will be a group you can compete with.

The purpose of this contest is to get us all moving for the sake of health and fitness. Please join in during WIN times or whenever your class can take a break outdoors.
