Become a Champion for Physical Activity!

The Physical Activity Leader (PAL) Learning System is a dynamic, action-focused professional development program within the Let’s Move! Active Schools framework. This unique opportunity is designed to fuel sustainable change and continued leadership development in K-12 schools across CT.

As the national initiative to ensure that 60 minutes of physical activity a day is the norm in K-12 schools across the country, Let’s Move! Active Schools equips schools with the resources and tools to increase physical education and physical activity opportunities for students.

Why are Active Schools so important? Because Active Kids Do Better. Physical activity not only helps kids stay healthy and strong, but it can also contribute to higher test scores, improved attendance, better behavior in class, enhanced leadership skills and a lifetime of healthy habits.

Come to CAS on February 28, 2017, to complete the PAL Learning System and become a champion for physical education and physical activity in your school community! Get access to hundreds of free resources, programs, discounts, and grant opportunities. Workshop details and registration information are below.
