The Power of People - Human Connection Makes a Difference!
My School In Motion engages students, teachers, parents...the entire school community.
My School In Motion’s impact reaches well beyond the schoolyard. The families of My School In Motion students are encouraged to participate in regular physical activity, including walking and bicycling to school, weekend hikes and other school-based family activities. Communication to the home reinforces the healthy messages students are receiving during the day. In addition, students are encouraged to share wellness and nutrition tips with their families. Mostly, students share what they learn because it’s fun!
Teachers, staff and administrators also benefit directly from the My School In Motion program. The same cognitive and wellness benefits that students derive are delivered to all adult members of the school community (even the crossing guard). There is a growing body of health and brain research to support the fact that daily physical activity is just as important for adults as it is for children.
