      JAMmin' Minutes

      The JAM (Just-a-Minute) School Program brings physical activity and health education directly into the classroom and is designed to teach kids healthier lifestyle habits.

      JAMmin’ Minute®: A one-minute fitness routine that includes 5 very simple exercises that kids (and staff) can do while either standing at their desk or sitting in a chair. Each exercise sheet also has a Health-E-Tip.

      The district-wide wellness project this year was to do JAMmin' Minutes 2 to 4 times a day for seven straight days.

      Principals at schools where they started the day with a JAMmin' Minute reported that tardiness figures were much lower because students didn't want to miss it!

      The program was so successful, many schools have continued doing it.
