There are many ways to increase physical activity throughout the day. By incorporating exercise during the everyday school routine, children gain many benefits. If it is safe, walking to and from school is a simple way to jumpstart the day’s activity. Schools that offer recess and physical education classes help children to maintain healthy body weight. Encourage your children to participate in school sports teams or clubs. A more active lifestyle leads to greater academic achievement. Schools can make difference both in and outside of the classroom!
