Teaching the Importance of Physical Activity
Pounding the Playground
Pounding the Playground is a four-week program that reinforces the importance of physical activity through walking and jogging. Students attending any Morgan County school are encouraged to participate, with a focus on elementary-ages kids.
Students have an opportunity to work on self-motivation, choosing to walk or jog the track during their recess times. Teachers are also encouraged to join the program and set a healthy example for their pupils. The program offers weekly drawings for smaller prizes to keep children excited and active, and the program ends with a grand prize drawing for a few lucky kids who receive a new bicycle.
All participating students are congratulated for their efforts and encouraged to stay active and healthy even after the program ends for a season. Ultimately, everyone who participates wins, as they learn to lead active and healthy lifestyles from a very young age.
