National Physical Education and Sport Week

Mark Your Calendar!

May 1-7, 2018

SHAPE America's National PE & Sport Week, held annually from May 1-7, celebrates and shares the value of effective physical education and sport programs in schools around the nation. This year, we will be highlighting some of our exceptional members and rising stars who are accomplishing "Big Feats" with their work — and leaving their mark on health education, physical education and sport. 

During this week, and the entire month of May, look for these inspirational success stories and take advantage of free activities, lesson plans and advocacy resources from SHAPE America that can benefit your school and community.

Share your own accomplishments on social media during our Twitter Slow Chat May 1-7 and help put a spotlight on health and PE in schools with our social media badges.


About our Theme

The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little “extra,” and SHAPE America members are extraordinary.

Every day, our members do all they can to prepare students to live their best life. They are the leaders, go-getters and everyday heroes whose exceptional feats inspire others to give their all.  To these teachers, we say thank you for your professional dedication, your commitment to the health and well-being of our nation’s students, and for your support of SHAPE America. We look forward to serving you for years to come.
