Epiphany Homeroom Challenge Gains Momentum!

It has been three weeks since we started the Homeroom Challenge and the success stories are running like a river in early spring!

Thus far, 5A , 5B, 7B, and 8B have returned to their old drinking habits! We are getting over 85% participation from these classes and are asking them to help us impart their knowledge to the rest of the homerooms for their benefit.

 7th Graders Melissa and Megan talk with Executive Director, Isaac Hunnewell, about the challenge and other aspects of the Water Champion program.

Teachers are enjoying the challenge as they find they can allocate students who need a classroom break to go fill up the water bottles for the entire class. This not only get students their water needed to stay awake and focused, but gives the class relief from a momentarily distracted student, allowing attention to return to learning.

Many students and teachers are also commenting on how the students are working together to win each daily challenge. H2knO has been present every day and has seen seen how the students are collaborating with each other to get each other their bottles and return them when required.

Let’s continue this momentum! More challenge stories to come!
