Earlier this month, the city’s Move-to-Improve program awarded P.S. 9 a grant to support fitness breaks in classrooms. The grant will provide up to $2500 for classroom teachers to train in the program, and also will supply classroom exercise equipment, music CDs, activity cards and other teaching aids.
The Move-to-Improve curriculum aims to increase physical activity among elementary students. It offers a series of 10-minute lessons that combine movement with academic learning. Click here to see the 32 different activities and learn more.
