Sheppard Students JAM in Philly

  1. Updates

The students of Sheppard Elementary in Philadelphia participated in a minute of movement for the Just a Minute (JAM) World Record campaign.

JAM rallied students and schools from all around the world to engage in a minute of physical activity to reach the world record for a fitness break. JAM partnered with the Let’s Move in School campaign, which is dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of children developing healthy habits early and the need for quality physical education programs in schools.

Principal Otto at Sheppard Elementary wanted to participate in world record as part of his personal Wellness Campaign initiative for the scho and asked Coach Sam to lead the school in the minute of physical activity. Coach Sam led the school in a rousing game of Running Through the Forest for the school’s minute of active fun. The children of Sheppard enthusiastically hoped, skipped, swam, and laughed with Coach Sam throughout the activity. Worldwide, thousands of other children were getting the same physical activity as the students in Philadelphia.
