Active Kids Learn Better

When kids are active they focus more, think more clearly, react to stress more calmly, and perform and behave better in class. 

That's why it's so important that our schools offer well-designed, health and physical education (HPE) programs...and provide opportunities for students to meet the recommended 60 minutes of daily physical activity before, during and after school.

HPE is Part of a Well-Rounded Education

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) identifies school health and physical education (HPE) as part of a student's well-rounded education.  This means educators, parents and administrators all share a responsibility to provide kids with effective HPE provided by trained and certified teachers.
