Ridgeway Community School Helps Students Go From Zero To Sixty

Ridgeway Community School received the Active Schools National Award. This award is the nation’s top physical education and physical activity distinction for K-12 schools and celebrates a school’s commitment to providing students with at least 60 minutes a day of before, during and after school physical activity. Our school was one of 544 schools in the nation to receive this award. To earn a Let’s Move! Active Schools National Award, a school must have met significant benchmarks in five areas: physical education; physical activity before and after school; physical activity during school; staff involvement; and family and community engagement.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Our school received this award with the dedication of our entire staff teaching and demonstrating to the students how important it is to be physically active each day. Every Wednesday our students and staff do a "Workout Wednesday" together by walking and/or running the track or by doing calisthenics/dances in the gym.
