You are Not Alone

This is the season when we normally gather at Grand Park for the state conference. We inspire each other. We learn from each other. We become better together. The absence of getting together now encourages us to envision a 2021 experience like no other.
 
But what about right now? Here's what you need to know: you are not alone!
 
In these uncertain times, it makes sense to yearn for mindfulness, self-care, and social-emotional engagement. Good news! INSHAPE has made a long-term, strategic commitment to support teachers in these particular areas (and many more!).
 
We've brought this together under the health. moves. minds. initiative with lessons, activities, professional development, tools, and team support opportunities. Some examples are available below and much, much more when you join the Indiana team of health. moves. minds. You have questions, we have answers:
  • What grade levels? Elementary, middle, high schools and even universities use health. moves. minds.
  • Is there a cost? No, health. moves. minds. is completely free.
  • Do I need to be an INSHAPE member? No, health. moves. minds. offers equity access regardless of membership.
  • What about fundraising? Should you have need, an optional fundraising platform is available to support PE in your school and community causes.
