Classroom Teachers Can Play A Huge Role In Keeping Kids Active and Ready To Learn

Active kids learn better! Classroom physical activity helps students feel better, work together as a team, reduce anxiety and maintain focus. You can contribute to their students’ need for movement while simultaneously teaching and reinforcing academic concepts.

When you join the Active Schools movement, you can:

  • Empower yourself with the latest tools, training, and confidence you need to continue providing quality education while incorporating movement.
  • Support your students with access to the equipment, space, and programs they require to thrive.
  • Receive support from outside organizationswho provide valuable training, program material, and implementation tools for your classroom.

Collective impact means gathering people together for a common cause. We all know how important increasing physical activity in children is. You can bring everyone together to make it happen.

What Joining The Active Schools Movement Means For You

There’s nothing to joining the Active Schools movement. There’s no commitment, no obligation, and never any cost to you or your school. There are only benefits:

  • A newsletter with free resources, training, special offers from our partners, and cutting-edge fitness programs from nonprofit organizations.
  • A network of schools, NGOs, athletic companies, and parents who want to promote activity in the next generation.
  • Join the growing ranks of people who are promoting health in the next generation.

We’re not an organization. We don’t need you to join us. We just want you to add your name to an organic movement of leaders like yourself. Together, we can improve outcomes for all our children.
