Let’s Move! Active Schools is the Theme for National Physical Education and Sport Week (May 1-7)
 
The theme for this year's National Physical Education and Sport Week is Let's Move! Active Schools, a comprehensive program that empowers school champions to create active environments that enable all students to get moving and reach their full potential. Through NPESW, AAHPERD is sharing some fun and unique ways to jump start your LMAS program and help you begin planning for full implementation for the 2013-2014 school year. 

Let’s Move! Active Schools, the theme for National Physical Education and Sport Week (May 1-7), is a comprehensive program that empowers school champions to create active environments that enable all students to get moving and reach their full potential. Quality physical education is the center of a comprehensive school physical activity program.  The American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD) invites all educators to visit the specially created May Week website. Here it is:
 
There you will find a template logo and press release, daily activities, a proclamation, great resources and much more.  
 
A big part of being healthy for children is getting the recommended level of physical activity – 60 minutes a day!  Check out these two wonderful Public Service Announcements from the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition.  One features Co-Chair Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints and the other features Co-Chair Dominique Dawes, 3-Time Olympic Gymnast.
