Active Schools honored Mountain View Elementary School with the 2017 Let’s Move! Active Schools National Award for its outstanding efforts in creating an active school environment. Active Schools is a national movement dedicated to ensuring that 60 minutes of physical activity a day is the norm in K-12 schools. The Let’s Move! Active Schools National Award is the nation’s top physical education and physical activity distinction for K-12 schools. Only 452 schools across the country achieved this prestigious honor in 2017. According to Active Schools, active kids do better in school. Regular physical activity not only helps kids stay healthy and strong, but it can also lead to higher test scores, improved attendance, increased focus, better behavior in class, enhanced leadership skills, and a lifetime of healthy habits. “We commend Mountain View Elementary’s model work around enhancing physical education and physical activity opportunities and inspiring students to perform their best, both in the classroom and in life,” said Charlene R. Burgeson, Active Schools Executive Director.
"Mountain View is leading the way in this generation-changing movement that is transforming our nation’s schools into active and healthy hubs," Burgeson added.
