Editorial Note: health.moves.minds.® is a program for health and physical education designed by health and physical educators. This national program is starting it's third year and is arguably the fastest growing national program of its kind. In a year of uncertainty, health.moves.minds. offers teachers and schools new tools to cope and thrive.
Across the country, today’s children and adolescents — at all grade levels — do not get enough physical activity, and are struggling with anxiety, depression, and other mental health challenges. Understanding these challenges, promoting an active school environment, and teaching children how to cope with stress, bullying, and societal pressures can make all the difference.
The health.moves.minds. program brings the lessons, activities, and community-building ideas that can help kids live their best lives.
INSHAPE endorses health.moves.minds. as our official in-school, in-service program. Major incentives are available to those who register by July 31, 2020. Let's bust the myths and set the record straight so you can make an informed decision.
Myth 1: It costs money to register for health.moves.minds. Reality: Registration is always free to all K-12 Indiana schools.
Myth 2: It is a promotional program with a culminating school event. Reality: health.moves.minds. is so much more. The program brings the lessons, activities, and community-building ideas that can help kids live their best lives.
Myth 3: I am required to fundraise with health.moves.minds. Reality: While health.moves.minds. offers an optional fundraising platform, there is no requirement for a school to fundraise.
Myth 4: Funds raised for health.moves.minds. go to a national organization. Reality: Should you decide to fundraise, the majority of the funds directly benefit your school, your community, and/or non-profits of your choosing.
Here's the bottom line: There has never been a better time to consider an in-school program like health.moves.minds. Sign up by July 31st to secure early registration incentives.
