"Minds on the Move" documents three TPES teachers' efforts to incorporate more physical activity into their classrooms.

Minds on the Move: Improving Student Health, Behavior and Performance from Takoma Park ES PTA - Wellness on Vimeo.

The video was created with the support of the Takoma Foundation as part of the PTA's "Move More! Sit Less" campaign.

In the video, Ms. Campbell (Kindergarten), Mr. Paredes (1st grade), and Mrs. Croft (2nd grade) talk about the benefits and challenges of active seating and other kinds of movement in their everyday work.

Special thanks go to these three teachers, Dr. Gadsden, and the entire TPES staff for their support of the video and "Move More! Sit Less."

The PTA is also indebted to former TPES parent Kim Connell of RAINLAKE (rainlake.com) for dedicating her amazing filmmaking talents to this project!
