Creating a Kinder, Healthier Future for All Children
Save the date and look for new activities and materials coming soon!
Across the country, today’s children and adolescents — at all grade levels — do not get enough physical activity, and are struggling with anxiety, depression, and other mental health challenges. Understanding these challenges, promoting an active school environment, and teaching children how to cope with stress, bullying, and societal pressures can make all the difference.
Every day, dedicated health and physical education teachers are making a profound difference in the lives of their students. They are preparing them to thrive physically, emotionally and socially to lead healthy and active lives.
That’s why this month — and in the months ahead — we want to highlight the activities, teachers and programs that inspire healthy habits, fuel active minds, and teach kids to thrive.
It’s time to change outdated perceptions of PE — to replace old memories with the new reality because health. moves. minds.
