RunningBrooke has teamed up with Alexandria City High for the Titan Steps Challenge! Every day in May, students and staff will track their steps, with the goal of an average of 6,000 per day. Challenge participants who meet the 6k are eligible for super cool gift cards to Bradlee Shopping Center businesses: Tropical Smoothie, Starbucks, Subway and Zoe’s Kitchen. RunningBrooke is giving away 12 gift cards each week!
May is also National Mental Health Awareness Month. In recognition, ACHS staff asked RunningBrooke to make videos for SEAL (social, emotional and academic lessons) instruction about the benefits of movement on the brain, emotions, etc. They’ll be shown each week in May to the entire student body.
During that time, students will –
- Learn how the brain produces chemicals to help feel their best emotionally
- Do a feelings “check-in” before and after movement
- Create a plan for moving their bodies during school when they need to reset and refocus for learning.
We’re proud of you, Titans…go team!
