BOKS is starting on Tuesday, September 26th so sign up now to be part of the fun!
BOKS is a before school physical activity program designed to get elementary school aged children moving in the morning to have a more productive school day. In 2009, Kathleen Tullie from Natick read the book, Spark, by Dr. John Ratey. The book clearly set forth the research as to why kids should be active before school, and she was inspired to create a program at her children’s elementary school. Since fall 2009, BOKS has grown from one elementary school in Natick, Mass., to over 1,500 elementary schools in six countries in 2015. For more info, visit www.bokskids.org.
The goals of BOKS are:
· Start the morning with active play to jump start children’s brains and make them better equipped for learning.
· Increase opportunities for children to be physically active and gain nutritional knowledge; creating healthy, lifelong habits.
· Empower communities to collaborate and make a positive difference in children’s lives
It’s time we make difference and create a healthier generation of children. Don’t sit still, Active Kids = Active Minds. For more, go to www.bokskids.org.
This program cannot be run without parent volunteers. Please consider signing up to run some sessions at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f084baeab22a20-boks6
