Let’s Move! Active Schools
The UCONN Women’s Basketball team is on a mission to bring the positive benefits of physical education and physical activity to every child across the state.
As student-athletes, academics are our number one priority. But do you know what drives our success both in the classroom and on the court? Moving and being active throughout the day. Physical activity not only helps us stay healthy and strong, but it also contributes to higher test scores, increased focus, enhanced leadership skills and a lifetime of healthy habits.
Will your school join us in championing Connecticut’s kids moving for at least 60 minutes a day?
1. Ready. Make sure your school has enrolled in Let’s Move! Active Schools (www.letsmoveschools.org) – the national initiative to ensure 60 minutes of physical activity a day is the norm in our nation’s schools.
2. Set. Complete the short Let’s Move! Active Schools assessment available on your Dashboard.
3. Go! Take advantage of the hundreds of free physical education and physical activity resources, programs, discounts and grants available through Let’s Move! Active Schools to get your students moving more!
Our goal is for EVERY school in Connecticut to be an Active School, so we will be checking back with you soon.
