WELLNESS SUCCESS STORY
2019 - 2020
Physical education equipment drastically improves the health care of ALLIES D 49 students by directly impacting where and how they can participate in curriculum-based lessons, collaborative projects supporting team building and good sportsmanship, growth mindset opportunities, and meeting CDE standards in physical education.
With the new sports equipment, ALLIES students used cooperative learning skills and problem-solving strategies to complete physical activities as a team. Friendships and bonds were created while supporting each other in engaging activities and lessons.
Our students have benefited from the use of new equipment, exclaiming “Can we do this every day” and “I have learned so much playing on a team” with enthusiasm for participating in the lessons and collaborative group projects. The benefits of being able to go outside and use the sports equipment have reflected in our students being able to focus and achieve more in their core classes. We have enjoyed receiving positive feedback from the students and their families that the health and wellness program at our school has had significant and exceptional benefits to our students enriching their productive learning time at school.
