School Wide Movement

Meadowlark’s focus on educating the “whole child”- social, emotional, physical and academic learning is embedded daily. Our entire student body, as well as our staff, have daily, active movement times. In addition, we have incorporated Exercise Learning Centers into each of our five learning communities so students who need more movement have an immediate opportunity. Physical movement has many proven, positive effects on health, attitude and academic learning.
