On Friday, March 6th, 329 K-12 teachers got students physically active for an average of 34.83 minutes during the school day. In doing so, they taught a valuable lesson: there is a vital connection between physical activity, learning and health!
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.
We congratulate all participating schools and commend those with exemplary effort with a March Forward Award.
