Rise & Shine
Rise & Shine – Three days a week, students at Broad Street Elementary in Gibbstown start the day with heart-pumping activities. The school community recognizes the importance of movement in helping students to be alert and ready for the school day. Current research shows that physical activity stimulates formation of new brain cells in areas of the brain associated with memory and learning. The organizers of Rise & Shine won a national Active Schools Acceleration Project grant to fund the program.
