    Whats the point?

    According to Dr. Beth Millers research before, during and after school programs participation is proven to reduce

    negative behaviors (e.g. juvenile delinquency, substance

    abuse, dropout rate, conflicts between youth, school

    suspensions) and increase attitudes and behaviors linked

    with school success (e.g. better school behavior, better

    emotional adjustment, better work habits, improved

    relationships with parents, improved grades).

  • Hey Oakland Staff, Youre


    Who? YOU!

    What? Getting Active

    When? Every day

    Where? Where ever you are

    Why? Because we care.

  • Fitness in Staff Meetings

    Just as we are trying to promote

    physical activity in the classroom

    through brain breaks, these

    strategies can work in staff

    meetings as well. Long, mundane

    meetings cause zoning out and

    lack of participation.
