It's Back to School Time--The Perfect Time to Speak Out for Our Kids!

by Melissa B. on Sunday, September 8, 2013

It's that time of year--the hustle and bustle of Back to School! But along with backpacks and books, let's not forget about another necessary tool for better learning: better health. Research shows that healthy children learn more effectively and achieve more academically. In addition, kids who get physical activity during the school day focus better in the classroom and have fewer discipline problems. As our kids settle into the new school year, now is the perfect time to advocate for policies that will lead to healthier futures. ABCs, 123s and PE! Speak Up for Physical Education in Schools!
