Playground Movement Project

We’re excited to have our playground movement pilot project nearing completion. The project incorporates lessons for students, instructional support for teachers, and the creation of movement paths and games both inside and outside of the school. This is a new district physical literacy and movement initiative under the guidance of Laura Paiement, our Healthy Schools & Self-Regulation Coordinator. Thank you Laura and your team! We love it!
