Let’s Move! Active Schools
SPARK is proud to be a Partner Organization of Let’s Move! Active Schools
What is an Active School?
An Active School incorporates physical activity before, during, and after school for at least 60 minutes a day!
Click Here to see how SPARK aligns with the CDC’s goals for a Comprehensive School Physical Activity Program and 60 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity each day.
As a partner organization, we encourage schools and school districts to enroll in Let’s Move! Active Schools. Once you sign up, you’ll gain access to free tools & resources and a customized Action Plan to increase physical activity and physical education opportunities for your students.
