why stay active?
Physical activity provides extraordinary benefits to children. In addition to supporting physical development and disease prevention, physical activity improves mental and emotional health and learning and cognition. Teachers often notice improvements in students’ attention, learning, and positive behavior in the classroom. We recognize the challenges children, parents, and teachers are facing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These challenges result in fewer opportunities for children to be physically active, so the Stay Active program seeks to provide new opportunities to fill these gaps.
