The Colorado Education Initiative believes the Red Hawk Movement Toolkit inspires and provides the know-how to bring a movement program to life. Red Hawk’s program has been designed to be inexpensive and doable. As with most things, it is most effective with the support of teachers and staff, students and parents; it calls for a collaborative effort. Prepare your students for optimal learning with the fun and engaging moves within… It’s time to get started!
Movement and exercise are more than activities at Red Hawk Elementary. They are foundational elements of the school culture. “We’ve built physical activity into our plan from day one. Using a rotating daily “movement calendar”, students gain 40 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity on a daily basis, in addition to scheduled PE class and recess.” Learn more at CEI’s Physical Activity Best Practices Guide.
