The Move-A-Thon activities will be virtual this year, but you still get your chance to earn the infamous plastic feet throughout the week. Activities will be released on June 1st, with the FINISH LINE on Friday, June 4th at the Genesee Hill playground from 4-6 pm! Masked participants can pick up their earned ‘feet’ along with ice cream for participation. If your grade earns the most feet, your whole grade will earn a Pajama Day at school – thanks Principal Kischner! RSVP here for the Finish Line Event.
Here’s how it will work! On Tuesday, June 1, an all-school email will kick things off by sharing the checklist for earning plastic feet. The activities for earning feet will include running for a certain number of blocks, riding something with wheels for a certain number of blocks, and exercises you can do anywhere, like push ups, squats and jumping jacks. Do the activities at home or in a park with friends. Track your earned feet on the checklist with a maximum of 10 feet possible! Gather pledges as you go and direct friends and family to donate on our Move-A-Thon donation page. Let’s get moving!
The PTA has donated $8,000 to the school for supplies for every child. This ensures that each child is able to start school and maintain the year with fresh supplies. We hope to raise the funds for supplies with the Move-A-Thon this year. You might even see our very own Genesee Hill Fox at the Finish Line doing a workout to earn those feet… will you beat the Fox??
THE FINE PRINT
Because we are doing virtual activities, this years feet earning is all honor system! Bring your checklist to the “Finish Line” tables on Friday, June 4th, 4-6pm to show our volunteers how many you’ve earned. If you forget your checklist, we will have extra printed for you to fill out. Make sure you ask Friends and Family to donate as well to cheer you on! The grade with the most participation earns an extra Pajama Day at school.
Students have all week to complete any of the challenges on any day.if you are unable to run, bike, do pushups – Substitute any of the activities for 15 minutes of your own preferred method of movement to earn a foot. The goal is move your body for fun.
