Childhood obesity rates are at an all-time high: today, nearly one in three kids and teens in the United States are obese or overweight. We know that physical activity produces overall physical, psychological and social benefits and that inactive children are likely to become inactive adults. That’s why in 2006, the American Heart Association and the National Football League teamed up to create the NFL PLAY 60 Challenge. The Challenge is a four-week program that inspires kids to get the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity a day in school and at home. By leveraging the American Heart Association’s health expertise and the NFL’s commitment to physical fitness, you can help us achieve our goal of getting kids physically active for 60 minutes every day all year long.
Congratulations to Mrs. Yaneth Romero for being selected as Cooper Elementary’s Attendance Incentive Award Winner!
Cooper Elementary placed first in Houston during the NFL Play 60 Challenge this year again! The 240 students who participated in the four-week challenge got a special surprise with a visit from the Houston Texans team members! The surprise also included a $5,000 award check which will be used to purchase new playground equipment for Cooper. A big shout out to Coach Jones, for keeping track and motivating our students through this challenge!! More on this story can be found in the Spring ISD News story "Cooper Elementary Takes Top Spot in NFL Play 60 Challenge". You can view images at our slideshow at the end of this page.
