Revolutionize How Schools Incorporate Physical Activity
The goal of Active Schools is to help K-12 schools provide exceptional and equitable physical activity programming for their students. In doing this, we aim for nothing less than prioritizing physical education and physical activity in our nation’s schools.
Your resources help schools create new ways of moving and new ideas of learning. This will help make physical activity part of everyday life. This means:
Physical activity is a key part of academic success. Your programs help students- and their schools- thrive.
We know there is a public health crisis. You can be at the national frontlines of turning that tide.
The more we recognize these benefits, the more attention will be paid to organizations like yours.
Demonstrating clear success helps you with fundraising and can put you into more and more schools.
“Movement and exercise are more than activities at Red Hawk Elementary. They are foundational elements of the school culture. We built physical activity into our plan from day one. Using a rotating daily ‘movement calendar,’ students gain 40 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity on a daily basis, in addition to scheduled PE class and recess.”
