The results are in, and the December 2022 Move2Learn Movement Challenge saw a record number of Alexandria city public school teachers participating—137, with 31 new to the program—and 3,837 students getting active. Teachers and students from every grade, K-12, took part!
This go-round, we couldn’t be more excited than to “have to” add a new award for schools that hit it out of the ball field—the GRAND PRIZE/PLATINUM LEVEL PARTICIPATION. And that honor goes to Naomi L. Brooks Elementary School, with a whopping 87% of teachers participating. Congratulations!
We also have a super special shout out to Mount Vernon Community School, with 100% new teacher participation. Amazing!
The next top three schools with the highest total number of participating teachers are:
GOLD: James K. Polk ES, 41%
SILVER: Douglas MacArthur ES, 31%
BRONZE: Charles Barret ES, 29%
- Coming in at 5th and 6th: Samuel Tucker and John Adams elementary schools, with 28% and 25% respectively.
- William Ramsay and George Mason tied for 7th with 21% each
- Jefferson-Houston PreK-8 IB came in 8th with 14%
- In 9th is Mount Vernon ES with 13%
- Other participating schools: Alexandria City High; Cora Kelly School for Math, Science and Technology; Francis Hammond and George Washington middle schools; and Lyles-Crouch Traditional Academy.
The Move2Learn Movement Challenge is a teacher’s easy gateway to adding regular movement into their curriculum. We typically hold two a year—one in the spring and one in winter—and both teachers and students love to participate. We’re excited that it’s grown beyond the elementary schools to the middle and even high schools! Congratulations to everyone!
