March Forward 2016

On Friday, March 4th, teachers across Rockland County will engage students in physically active "brain breaks" throughout the school day.  In doing so, they will teach a valuable lesson: there is a vital connection between physical activity, learning and health!

Visit this page again in January 2016 for instructions on how you and your students can participate.

The March Forward Message: 

  • Physical activity helps you look and feel your best.
  • Being physically active and physically fit helps you do better in school.
  • It is a great way to make friends.
  • Children and teens should get at least 60 minutes of physical activity each day.

March Forward was created by the Steering Committee of the Rockland County School Health and Wellness Coalition. Data collection materials and technology is created and maintained by the following School Coalition community partners: Rockland 21st Century Collaborative for Children and Youth (Rockland 21C), Rockland County Department of Health and Rockland Teachers' Center.
