Chagrin Falls Students Move 187,364 Miles in District-Wide MOVchallenge
Students, faculty and staff in the Chagrin Falls Exempted Village School District were encouraged to participate in a 21-day MOVchallenge to accrue 100 miles of activity. The entire challenge not only inspired movement, but it also helped to ignite a wave of school spirit.
For starters, MOVbands were distributed to all 2,500 students, faculty and staff members throughout the district. During the 21-day MOVchallenge, various mileage rewards and activity-based monetary sponsorships helped to fuel enthusiasm. In addition, many of the students participated in the Tiger Tour Challenge, a three-week district-wide program that encouraged students to virtually “walk” to other stadiums that claim the tiger as their mascot.
School Pride Helps to Motivate
Throughout the entire MOVchallenge, it was obvious that students were motivated by competition and school spirit. The elementary students demonstrated unparalleled enthusiasm and high levels of motivation, and in fact, logged the biggest numbers in the district. Intermediate school participants competed fiercely, motivated by the color incentive bands and fun activities like their very own flash mob dance. Middle school and high school students liked the school spirit connected with the Tiger Tour Challenge, and eagerly recorded the miles on their MOVbands.
The results were impressive, with a total of 187,364 miles recorded on the MOVbands. The entire challenge not only inspired movement, but it also helped to promote school spirit. Students in all grades learned that movement can be fun and rewarding.
