Move 60 is a before or after school exercise program for students in grades 2 – 6. The goal of the MOVE 60! Program is to get students active and exercising 60 minutes per day, Monday – Thursday.  The program is intended to increase opportunities for student activity outside of the school day.  The intention is to fight childhood obesity, improve student health issues, offer an opportunity to play sports, and to provide the physical, social, and emotional benefits of extra exercise to students.

There will be 3 sessions offered throughout the school year for in-person program 4 days per week Move 60:

Fall: October 4 – December 17

Winter: January 10 – March 18

Spring: April 11 – June 3, 2022
