Elementary schools play an important role in children’s physical activity, and the adoption of comprehensive school-based approaches, including before, during, and after-school physical activity opportunities, can help students meet recommendations and improve their health. Additionally, urban school children may have fewer opportunities for physical activity than rural school children (e.g., recess). This article from the November/December issue of the American Journal of Health Education examines factors affecting the adoption of physical activity approaches in schools from urban districts.

News Around the Nation

 

Lincoln Times-North

A physical education teacher at Pumpkin Center Primary School used a little bit of ingenuity to help his students to stay active. Logan Spake created videos to show students and parents how to use basic household items such as a napkin, a paper plate, old socks, an empty milk jug, old T-shirts, or a plastic grocery bag to create and assemble physical education personal packets to be used at home or during a physical education class at school.

When the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services announced an order last week to shut down high school sports, the first thought for many coaches and athletic directors was not the games lost or the championship opportunities that may never come. Instead, their thoughts went straight to the mental health of the athletes who once again this year saw their lives turned upside down amid a global pandemic. 

 

EurekAlert

The COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated widespread social isolation, affecting all ages of global society. A new rapid review in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (JAACAP) reports on the available evidence about children and young people specifically, stating that loneliness is associated with mental health problems, including depression and anxiety. 

 

CNY Central

Many states including Illinois and Minnesota are hitting pause on youth sports as hundreds of COVID-19 outbreaks are being directly linked to games and tournaments. Here in Central New York, lower-risk fall sports just finished what appears to be an overall healthy, successful season. Section III Athletics Director John Rathbun calls the anything-but-normal high school fall sports season a big victory. 

 

The Hechinger Report

Doug Worthen guided his small class of ninth graders through an exercise designed to focus their attention. On his screen, he saw the students sitting outside or at desks and lounging across their beds as they joined their weekly mindfulness class online. One by one the students clicked off their cameras, each square became a white and gray icon, and Worthen began the meditation. “Notice where your attention is,” he said.
