Move 60! 2023-2024

Update:

We want to let you know that due to a change in the level of grant funding we are receiving this school year, we will no longer be able to provide Move 60 programs at all of our elementary schools. However, some schools will be able to continue the program.

We want to thank our community partners Verdant, the Hazel Miller Foundation, foundry10, and the Hubbard Foundation, for providing funding for Move 60 at six of our elementary schools. These schools have the highest number of students who qualify for free and reduced meals. Those schools are:

  • College Place Elementary 

  • Chase Lake Elementary 

  • Cedar Valley Elementary

  • Spruce Elementary

  • Lynndale Elementary

  • Mountlake Terrace Elementary

Registration Packets  Registration for the winter session will open on Monday, November 20th and close on Friday, December 8th.
