Let’s Move! Active Schools teamed up with SPARK, provider of the world’s most-researched and field-tested physical education (PE) programs, to support physical activity and healthy learning environments in schools.
Each Let’s Move! Active Schools champion that enrolled from May 2014-January 2015 and indicated SPARK as the referring source was entered into a monthly drawing to win a gift certificate from SPARK. SPARK also offered a grand prize of an all-expenses paid trip to San Diego to attend a SPARK Institute for training in their research-based physical education program.
The grand prize winner is Morgan Leal of Trinity Basin Preparatory in Dallas, Texas. Morgan will attend the 3-6 PE SPARK Institute in San Diego July 23-24, 2015. The prize includes flight, hotel, Institute registration, and the SPARK 3-6 PE digital curriculum.
“Let’s Move! Active Schools provides tools to help increase physical activity on your campus as well as resources to help improve your Physical Education class,” said Leal. “I am excited to be part of an organization that does so much to help teachers, and I am looking forward to attending SPARK’s 3-6 PE Institute this summer. I think it’s great that these two organizations have come together to help improve the overall health of our students.”
SPARK will team up with Let’s Move! Active Schools again this year, encouraging schools to enroll by offering sign-up contests throughout the 2015-2016 school year.
