Community Involvement
Our success story at Zavala Elementary has been to create a mindfulness about and active environment for our PE classes. With the use of Kids Get Fit Community Program, we have tried to create a class culture where we believe movement matters. We ask the kids to get creative in their movements and/or follow along with our Kids Get Fit Instructors during each lesson. Our kids really love to dance and enjoyed working with Coach AB! We strongly believe using this great community partner has assisted our kids in becoming more mindful and active, which has helped us to improve our class behaviors and attention spans in class. It has also strengthened our classroom cohesion and also served as a great workout for the day.
