The Shark Challenge is one way that we encourage students at Saratoga Shores to participate in physical activity. This year's challenge will run from September 14, 2015, through May 10, 2016. The Shark Challenge works as part of the Fuel Up to Play 60 program that Saratoga Shores participates in.
With parent permission, students can accept the challenge of exercising to reach 100 miles during the school year. Students can walk or run at school, and teachers will tally their miles. Students can also log miles at home and return signed log sheets to the student's teacher. Physical activity other than walking/running can also count toward the total; one hour of physical activity (such as soccer practice) = 1 mile. Students will be awarded a pin for every 25 miles earned; students who complete 100 miles or more will receive a medal at the end of the year.
