You won't want to miss this fun, interactive play session with a former Farmington Education Association Teacher of the Year, to learn how movement improves math and reading scores. The Move More initiative has provided an opportunity for public health and local school districts to focus on the interconnection between physical activity, health, and academic achievement. At this session, you will learn how to work successfully with schools to make sustainable changes to increase physical activity. A media presentation will highlight additional teachers' stories about how this has impacted fitness and test scores in Dakota County.
