GET A MOVE ON
Children love feeling healthy! A fit body boosts kids’ confidence and energizes young minds to learn about the world around them. But childhood obesity is increasing at an alarming rate and without intervention, affected children may face a lifetime of weight-related frustration and illness.
The Recess Rocks® program reverses childhood obesity and promotes life-enhancing habits. A creative, dynamic movement program for elementary school children, Recess Rocks brings fun, low-cost, non-competitive exercise and kinesthetic learning into recess periods and the classroom. Kids and your whole community benefit!
Increased physical activity is linked to improved cognitive functioning and improved mental wellbeing, both of which support learning.
