One La Crosse school is getting a big honor for keeping
kids moving during the day.
Lincoln Middle School is being named a national 'Let's
Move Active School.'
The award is part of First Lady Michelle Obama's 'Let's
Move!' initiative to get kids across the country more
Lincoln Middle was chosen for their commitment to
making sure kids get at least 60 minutes of physical
activity every day.
That includes making sure students get enough recess
and taking 'brain breaks' .
to do short activities in the classroom.
Sometimes the concepts are really tough, and so it
allows for the kids to just take a step back, make
sure their brain is engaged and then it really gets
them to focus again after the break.
Lincoln Middle is one of 544 schools across the country
to be recognized as a 'Let's Move' active school.
