BOKS Program – Building Our Kids' Success!
On Wednesday, November 15th, Wakaw School launched a new, free before school program sponsored by Reebok, called BOKS. Build Our Kids Success (BOKS) is a grassroots movement that was started in 2009 by Executive Director Kathleen Tullie and a group of passionate volunteers, who were inspired by Dr. John Ratey's book Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain. Dr. Ratey's research provides compelling evidence on how physical activity will supercharge mental circuits to beat stress, sharpen thinking and enhance memory in kids.
Children, ages Kindergarten to Grade 8, typically meet 3 mornings a week for a 30-minute session (8:20 am - 8:50 am) and engage in daily themes of functional fitness that incorporate day-to-day movements and play.
For more information or to get your children registered, please contact the school.
