Spring Fitness Challenge
Our next fitness challenge is here! It is called Spring Into Fitness and it is a month long step challenge. For the entire month of May you will be tracking your steps every day to try and get the most steps in by May 31st. Top three “steppers” will win some awesome prizes. To be able to participate in this challenge you will have to track your steps through a wearable fitness tracker like a fitbit or through a smartphone health app. The challenge will start on May 1st and will run the entire month of May. To measure everyone’s steps, monitor everyone’s progress and spark some competition we will be using a platform called “Count.it”. To participate in this challenge you will need to sign up on Count.it and connect your tracking device (either your wearable or your phone) to the platform. Through that platform you will be able to see your progress as well as the leaderboard. This challenge is open to anyone in the community – students, teachers, or staff. Deadline to sign up for the challenge is April 30th. Please use the link below to sign up, or the link is also posted on the student services schoology page. Let’s get stepping!!
