What is Move-to-Improve? 

Move-to-Improve is a free classroom-based physical activity program that helps elementary school teachers in district public schools enhance their lessons by integrating physical activity into academic instruction to get students moving. Activities are adaptable for different ages, academic levels, and physical abilities.  Move-to-Improve All-Star schools have a comprehensive physical education (PE) program led by a certified or designated PE teacher, and at least 85% of elementary teachers trained in Move-to-Improve. 

Why become a Move-to-Improve All-Star School? 

Physical movement stimulates academic success by helping students to be alert and have the energy to learn. Student success depends on a combination of academic skills, healthy lifestyle, and physical and mental fitness. Move-to-Improve activities support New York State PE Learning Standards and are aligned with all content areas in the core curriculum. Move-to-Improve All-Star schools may count up to 40 minutes of Move-to-Improve activities each week in order to supplement the New York State Elementary PE requirement (120 minutes of PE each week). 

Students will have the opportunity to have a well-rounded education being exposed to a concentrated music program. They will learn music notation, how to sing in an ensemble, and how to improve performance techniques. Students will increase their repertoire learning new songs and have the experience of enjoying music!
