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.
Congratulations to Little Valley Elementary School for winning “This Month’s Most Active School”.
Each City will schedule Move it! events that the students can participate in on their own or with their families.
