West Liberty Elementary School was named as a winner in the national Active Classrooms Month contest, and students are already putting their prizes to good use.
Each February, teachers and families across the country are encouraged to participate in Active Classrooms Month. The event introduces ways to integrate movement into the classroom and demonstrate the positive impact it has on young people. The school received a shipment of new jump ropes for being named as a winner in the initiative.
Classroom physical activity helps students feel better, work together as a team, reduce anxiety and maintain focus all while helping them learn and retain academic content. In addition, movement can be a great classroom and virtual learning management tool for teachers and caregivers by energizing tired or distracted students and calming students to prepare for learning and testing. Congratulations to West Liberty Elementary School!!!
