High Road School at North Caroline High School Push-Up Challenge was created to provide students the opportunity to increase overall school engagement. Students and staff collaborate every day to see how many Push-Ups can be completed in the classroom. Every participants’ number of push-ups are tracked daily and total numbers are submitted at the end of each week. Students are also rewarded on Fridays for beating their total number of push-ups from the week prior! This week’s reward is Gatorade! Students are understanding how one of the oldest and most basic exercises can be completed anywhere while receiving endless benefits. Students are learning benefits such as appropriate use of a coping tool when frustrated, tired, stressed, etc., teamwork and collaboration, goal setting and progress tracking, endurance and strengthening! So far, the class has reached their Push-Up goal every week! The class’ goal for the last week of October is 262 Push-Ups!
