Colorado Kids Need Quality Physical Education!

Quality PE is an essential building block for our children's health and educational success. Research shows access to physical activity like that provided in PE class helps our kids in three specific ways: reducing health risks and maintaining a healthy weight, academic achievement, mental wellness.  Sadly, many school districts across Colorado have either eliminated physical education (PE) or drastically cut the time spent by students in PE.
