Healthy Happening: Friday Fit At Oliver Elementary

Oliver Elementary turned a lemon into lemonade after library time was cut last year. To fill that 20 minutes/week for each class, Friday Fit emerged, allowing each class to have 20 minutes of physical activity with Principal Egbers and Mr. Kalstad in the gym every Friday. Way to go Oliver Elementary!

Playworks provides recess coaches and technical assistance to "support learning by providing safe, healthy inclusive play and physical activity to schools at recess and throughout the entire school day."

Funding Opportunity: Nike Employee Grant Fund
Deadline: November 15          Award: $5000-20,000
Description: For projects that use sport or physical activity to leverage other community benefits
