"Move It" Program
Get kids moving for better health. We want to encourage participation, without an emphasis on competition.
With the help of the elementary school P.E. teachers, and volunteer mentors from the community assigned to each school, each child will be encouraged to keep track of time spent running, walking, biking, swimming, or playing sports . Activity logs will be completed and turned in each month. The school with the highest percentage of activity will receive an award and a banner will be displayed at the school for one month.
How Does It Work? Students that exercise will receive "Move It! Points" for exercising daily! Students can then turn in their points for prizes!
Students can redeem points for:
Turning In Calendars Students can complete a monthly calendar and turn it in each month for "Move It! Points" If students get their parents involved, they can turn in calendars for them as well for extra points!
Participating In Activities: For a list of activities click here!
Exercising in P.E. or At Recess! Washington County School District P.E. teachers will be handing out points to students they think are excelling in P.E. Move It! Mentors that attend recess and see students moving can also pass out points.
Students can turn in their points for prizes during ANY City of St. George "Move It!" Event." or on designated days throughout the month. (Days will be posted soon!)
