Bring PE to Your Family Week October 19-23, 2020

Due to the current health environment, instead of conducting Take Your Parent to PE Week this September, we are celebrating Bring PE to Your Family Week from October 19-23. This approach comes with silver linings. Families can conduct their PE lesson at a time of their choosing, which will allow for all family members to participate. Students will have the opportunity to showcase their age-appropriate leadership skills by planning and facilitating a lesson with guidance from their teacher. We are partnering with OPEN to create fun and engaging instructional content to help students bring PE to their families. Sign up below and stay tuned for activities, videos, and advocacy resources.

PLEASE SIGN UP HERE. WHY? Because Active Schools can bring more media attention to Bring PE to Your Family Week, and physical education in general, when we are able to report a large number of participating schools.

Active Kids Learn Better!

Did you know? Classroom teachers can contribute to their students’ need for movement while simultaneously teaching and reinforcing academic concepts. The benefits of physical activity breaks in the classroom are endless.
