Lets Move in ND Schools Information

Let's Move in North Dakota Schools is an initiative based on the National Let’s Move campaign put forth by First Lady Michelle Obama. It encourages physical educators, parents, school administrators and policy makers to get involved in bringing quality physical education and physical activity to schools through a comprehensive school physical activity program.

The goals of Let’s Move include:

  • Provide a variety of school-based physical activity opportunities that enable all students participate in at least 60 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity each day.
  • Promote coordination of physical activity to maximize understanding, application, and practice of the knowledge and skills learned in physical education so that all students will be fully physically educated and well equipped for a lifetime of physical activity.

It is recommended that students receive no less than 60 minutes per day of physical activity and the Let’s Move in North Dakota Schools initiative works to infuse physical activity into multiple aspects of the school day, not just within the physical education program. Let’s Move programs should include physical education, physical activity during school, physical activity before and after school, staff involvement and family and community involvement.
