Re-establishing ACTIVE Environments

Are you ready to go back in time to a place where physical education (PE) was a valued component of a child's education and physical activity (PA) opportunities were found throughout the day? Then let's jump into our DeLorean and fire up the flux capacitor!

Our special guest speaker -- Pam Powers, Let's Move! Active Schools Recruitment Manager -- will share her "secret sauce" for developing a school culture where PE and PA are foundational to academic success. Powered by an unprecedented national collaboration of health and education organizations, Let's Move! Active Schools ensures 60 minutes of physical activity each day is the norm for your school.
Bonded by a mutual goal to turn the tide on childhood obesity, Let's Move! Active Schools and SPARK raise awareness of how physical activity improves a child's ability to learn. And these two great organizations are on a healthy mission to support schools with physical activity and physical education promoting policies, practices, and environments.

During this webinar, you will learn how Let's Move! Active Schools:

  • Provides opportunities for physical educators to be recognized as gurus and change agents
  • Delivers a customized Action Plan that aligns with core competencies and national standards
  • Simplifies the selection of programs, initiatives and resources
