Three 60MKC school challenges are held throughout the year skipping over busy times at school and holidays eg:
FALL [October 1st--December 1st]
WINTER [January 15th -- March 15th]
SPRING [April 15th -- June 1st]
The 60 Minute Kids' club is a blend of high tech & high touch practices that have proven successful in past initiatives. The format is as follows:
Touch: a school assembly for the students provides a fun and educational format to bring awareness and responsibility on what healthy habits are and how they can incorporate them into their daily life. The website has a 60 MKC pledge form they can print at home, and put on the fridge to remind them of the 60 day healthy challenge their school is participating in.
Tech: the online tracking provides feedback to the students, their parents and their teachers on how they are doing during the challenge. The healthy behaviours and goals may include:
* Featured goals will vary between schools/province.
SCHEDULE & SUPPORT
KICK OFF ASSEMBLIES
The challenge kick off assemblies begin 2 weeks in advance of the start dates with the 60MKC launch video to share the what / why / how of the program while getting kids excited.
Ambassadors can be members of the 60MKC, Olympians, varsity & amateur athletes, principals, vice principals, PE teachers, PAC members, government officials, etc. Throughout the 60 days, ambassadors are encouraged to visit the classrooms and check in on who's registered and following the healthy recommendations.
Information is then sent home to the parents by way of prepared communications from the schools encouraging them to assist their kids in signing up under their school. Much like the recycling program, the 60MKC is designed at affect positive change IN THE HOME; parent / child vs. teacher / student.
We send % participation and total score reports to school administrators and whomever we determine wants to see the results through the 60 day challenge. This provides accountability to the administrators.
