DeLisle Students “Move to Learn”

The star of the “Move to Learn” exercise break videos Coach Larry Calhoun, recently visited DeLisle Elementary School to share his infectious enthusiasm for a healthy, active lifestyle.  Staff and students alike were engaged as Coach Calhoun encouraged all to raise student fitness levels and in turn, raise student achievement.

An initiative of The Bower Foundation and the Mississippi Department of Education’s Office of Healthy Schools, “Move to Learn” exercise videos offer brief, organized and free classroom movement breaks. These breaks help teachers manage their students’ energy level so that after a fitness break, children’s brains are more focused and ready to learn.

“Move to Learn” activities, led by Coach Curtis Cotton, are an integral part of each morning in DeLisle Elementary School classrooms.
