Play 60 Challenge
Can you Play 60? Mabry is joining 2019 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Play 60 challenge, a program that educates elementary students about staying fit. The Challenge encourages students be physically active for 60 minutes every day - both at school and at home.  This year's challenge will run from February 1 - March 1 and is open to all FIFTH GRADE students.  

During the four week challenge, students will be asked to track their minutes of physical activity in and out of school - during P.E., recess, after school activities, walking the dog, dancing etc. - on a Student Activity Tracker form.  Each week, they will turn in the form to their teacher to be counted. The school with the highest average of active minutes wins a $1,500 in school P.E. equipment and a celebration with the Buccaneer players!  Check out an earlier Play 60 celebration  here.

Safety Tip of the Week
We have new flags to help students cross the street at the Estrella/Hubert crosswalk. If you are walking, please use a flag to help you cross safely, and leave it in the container on the other side of the street when you cross. If you are driving, please watch out for students that are crossing the street at that busy intersection.
