Lets Move Active Schools

Let's Move Active Schools

Why Active Schools?

Regular physical activity helps students succeed in school – and in life!

In addition to keeping kids healthy and strong, being active for 60 minutes each day has been shown to:

  • Increase concentration and focus
  • Improve classroom attendance and behavior
  • Boost academic performance

As the places where kids spend a majority of their time, schools are important places for kids to experience and enjoy being active.  That’s why, in collaboration with the groups below, the First Lady kicked off the Let’s Move! Active Schools program to help schools across the country make quality physical activity a part of every kid’s day.

Let’s Move! Active Schools is a comprehensive program that empowers school champions – P.E. teachers, classroom teachers, principals, administrators, and parents – to create active environments that enable all students to get moving and reach their full potential.

A Let’s Move! Active School provides opportunities in 5 key areas:

  1. Physical Education
  2. Physical Activity During School
  3. Physical Activity Before and After School
  4. Family & Community Involvement
  5. Staff Involvement

Let’s Move! Active Schools provides individual champions with a clear roadmap to meet their goals in the 5 key areas above. Learn more: www.letsmoveschools.org

    First Lady Michelle Obama to Join Shaquille O’Neal, Allyson Felix, and Dominique Dawes at a Back to School Event

    Mrs. Obama to highlight healthy changes happening in schools, and applaud new commitments to Let’s Move! Active Schools

    Washington, DC – On Friday, September 6, at 1:00 PM ET, First Lady Michelle Obama will visit Orr Elementary in Washington, DC for a back to school event highlighting healthy changes happening in schools and across the country. Mrs. Obama will be joined by Shaquille O’Neal, Allyson Felix, Dominique Dawes, DC Public Schools Chancellor Kaya Henderson and North America Reebok President Uli Becker to announce new commitments around Let’s Move! Active Schools, which aims to get physical activity back into schools, before, during and after the school day. Since launching in February, more than 3,700 schools have signed up at LetsMoveSchools.org to be active schools, building on the knowledge that active kids do better. Shaq and Allyson Felix are respectively Reebok and Nike spokespeople, both companies that have made commitments to Let’s Move! Active Schools.

    Orr Elementary School has been a great example of what schools all across the country are doing to provide healthier environments for kids. Not only has Orr successfully implemented the new healthy school lunch standards, but they’ve already started providing healthier snacks in vending machines – a move all schools will make starting next school year. Orr also has physical education classes, and participates in BOKS, an initiative of Reebok and the Reebok Foundation which incorporates physical activity and nutrition into programming for kids before the school day.

    During the event, the First Lady will deliver remarks about healthy changes happening in schools and across the country, and then participate in a physical activity with children and the athletes.

      Reebok, DC Public Schools Make Commitments to Getting Kids Active Through Let’s Move! Active Schools

      Mrs. Obama joined Shaquille O’Neal, Allyson Felix and Dominique Dawes to applaud new commitments and urge additional school districts to join at LetsMoveSchools.org

      Washington, DC – Today, First Lady Michelle Obama visited Orr Elementary in Washington, DC for a back to school event highlighting healthy changes happening in schools and across the country. Joined by Shaquille O’Neal, Allyson Felix, Dominique Dawes, DC Public Schools Chancellor Kaya Henderson and North America Reebok President Uli Becker, Mrs. Obama praised new commitments from DC Public Schools and Reebok to get more kids moving through Let’s Move! Active Schools and put out a call to action for more school districts to sign up. The First Lady highlighted new statistics showing a decline in obesity rates among young children and emphasized that our collective efforts to address this epidemic are beginning to have a real impact.

      Chancellor Henderson announced that all 111 District of Columbia Public Schools have signed up for Let’s Move! Active Schools, the First Lady’s initiative to get schools to provide 60 minutes of physical activity a day before, during and after school. Uli Becker announced that BOKS, an initiative of Reebok and the Reebok Foundation which incorporates physical activity and nutrition into programming for kids before the school day, will provide approximately 500 schools with a grant of $1,000 each to bring BOKS to their school, giving priority to schools that are signed up for Let’s Move! Active Schools. Reebok will also partner with the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance to support Let’s Move! Active Schools.

      After making the announcement, Mrs. Obama and Shaq took over Orr Elementary’s PA system, telling the kids how proud they were of them for eating healthy and getting active. Then Mrs. Obama joined Shaq, Felix and Dawes back in the multipurpose room for informal remarks and several fun physical activities with a few dozen of Orr’s 4th and 5th graders.

      “Right now, we’re truly at a pivotal moment – a tipping point when the message is just starting to break through, when new habits are just beginning to take hold, and we’re seeing the very first glimmer of the kind of transformational change that we’re capable of making in this country,” Mrs. Obama told the audience at Orr Elementary School. “And if we keep pushing forward, we have the potential to transform the health of an entire generation of young people.”

      Remarks by the First Lady at Let’s Move! Back-to-school Event and Let’s Move! Active Schools Announcement

      Orr Elementary School
      Washington, D.C.

      1:05 P.M. EDT

      MRS. OBAMA: Well, hello. How’s everyone doing? It is a pleasure and an honor to be with all of you here today at Orr Elementary School! Yay, Orr! (Applause.) We have a few Orr fans in the house. (Laughter.) Thank you all for hosting us today.

      I want to start by, of course, thanking Shaq for that very kind introduction, but for also being one of the few people on Earth who can make me feel small. (Laughter.) I know I can always wear my heels when Shaq is around, so I appreciate that.

      I also want to thank Dominique Dawes, who is here joining us. And I want to thank her, as well as Allison for their passionate commitment to inspiring our young people. Hi.

      And of course, I want to give a huge thank you to Uli and to Reebok and the BOKS program. Along with Nike and nine other organizations, they are truly the driving force behind Let’s Move Active Schools. And I have to say that it is really inspiring to see two big competitors like Nike and Reebok coming together on behalf of our kids. And I truly look forward to seeing more companies join our efforts to get our kids moving.

      I also want to thank Chancellor Henderson for her leadership in signing up the entire D.C. Public School District for Let’s Move Active Schools. And I hope that every school district in America will follow D.C.’s lead.

      And finally, I want to thank all of you who have come here today. You all have devoted your lives to educating our children. And as we begin this new school year, I know that, as always, you’re going to be working hard to engage and inspire your students and prepare them to succeed in school and in life.

      And that’s really why I wanted to be here with you today, because more than anything else, that’s what Let’s Move is all about. That has been our goal right from the very beginning: To ensure that all of our children grow up healthy and have the bright futures we all know they deserve.

      Now, back when we first started Let’s Move, I have to be honest with you, I had a few doubts about how much we could actually accomplish. The problem of childhood obesity was so complex. The statistics were staggering, and so many people were skeptical about our chances to make a real difference.

      Kaiser study finds ‘lower than expected’ ObamaCare premiums

      9/05/13 06:00 AM ET By Elise Viebeck – TheHill

      A leading health policy research organization reported “lower than expected” premiums for ObamaCare’s new insurance exchanges in a major study released Thursday.

      The nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation compiled premium data from the new marketplaces in the 17 states where it is fully available and released a variety of figures showing how much consumers will pay if they choose to purchase coverage individually.

      The study is among the first to show in detail what a variety of exchange-based health plans will cost people of different ages and incomes under ObamaCare — a major source of debate between supporters and opponents of the law.
      Kaiser researchers looked specifically at states’ largest cities, plus the District of Columbia, and how much young adults, families of four and older couples will have to pay for nonemployer-based health coverage in those areas.

      In Baltimore, for example, a 25-year-old will pay $179 per month for the second lowest cost “silver” plan and $115 per month for the cheapest available option, the lowest cost “bronze” plan.

      Those monthly premiums drop to $144 and $80, respectively, when researchers assumed that the 25-year-old was eligible for a tax credit based on an income of $25,000 per year.

      For a family of four, including two 40-year-old adults, the monthly premium for the second lowest cost “silver” plan would be $683, or $409 with a tax credit based on an income of $60,000.

      For the lowest cost “bronze” plan, the family would pay $437 monthly or $164 with the tax credit factored in.

      Overall, a single 40-year-old who is eligible for ObamaCare’s tax credit could pay a minimum of $97 per month for health coverage in Hartford, Conn., or a maximum of $168 per month in Sioux Falls, S.D.

      Researchers with Kaiser wrote that “while premiums will vary significantly across the country, they are generally lower than expected.”

    Remarks by President Obama and President Xi of the People’s Republic of China Before Bilateral Meeting

    G20 Summit Site
    St. Petersburg, Russia

    9:46 A.M. MSK

    PRESIDENT XI: (As interpreted.) Honorable President Obama, it’s my great pleasure to meet you again. Our meeting today reminds me of the meeting we had this past June when we met in the Annenberg Estate. In that meeting, we reached important consensus of mutual interest in our bilateral relationship. In particular, we agreed once again to building a new model of major country relationship between China and the United States.

    The Annenberg Estate is a beautiful and quiet place, and I still have fresh memories of your warm hospitality. So I take this opportunity to thank you again for hosting me.

    Since we met last time, our two teams have worked closely together to implement a consensus we have reached. The fifth round of the China-U.S. Strategic and Economic Dialogue produced bountiful results. Our mil-to-mil relationship continues to improve. We have made solid progress in advancing practical cooperation in many different areas, and we have maintained close communication and coordination of major international and regional issues.

    In my view, the China-U.S. relationship has maintained a sound momentum of development.

    PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, Mr. President, thank you for hosting us, and it is a pleasure to see you again.

    As President Xi indicated, we had excellent meetings in Sunnylands earlier this year. And we agreed to continue to build a new model of great power relations based on practical cooperation and constructively managing our differences.

    As has been indicated, we’ve made significant progress on a range of issues, whether it’s cooperation on addressing climate change, expanded military-to-military consultations that ensure awareness and avoid potential conflicts or miscommunications. And we’ve had some extensive discussions through the Strategic and Economic Dialogue about how we can continue to grow the economy and give some momentum to global growth that creates jobs, prosperity, and balanced growth around the world.

      PRESIDENT OBAMA: (in progress) — I thank France and President Hollande for their outstanding efforts in Mali. We congratulate the Malian people for their special presidential elections. And our countries will continue to work with the international community, including the United Nations, to help Mali to strengthen its democratic institutions and pursue reconciliation.

      We had the opportunity to discuss how we and our P5-plus-1 partners remain prepared to engage diplomatically with Iran to resolve the international community’s concerns with Iran’s nuclear program. We recognize there have been new elections in Iran. We hope that they take the opportunity to demonstrate in action and not just in words that they, in fact, are committed to not pursuing a nuclear weapon.

      With regard to Syria, obviously a topic that President Hollande and I have had extensive discussions about, both our countries have concluded the same thing, that chemical weapons were used in Syria, that they were used by the Assad regime against civilians, that the chemical weapons ban is a critical international norm, and that it needs to be enforced.

      I value very much President Hollande’s commitment to a strong international response for these grievous acts. Any action that we contemplate and partners like France might contemplate would be limited, proportionate, and appropriate and would be focused on deterring the use of chemical weapons in the future and degrading the Assad regime’s capacity to use chemical weapons.

    Payrolls in U.S. Rose Less Than Forecast; Jobless Rate at 7.3%

    Sep 6, 2013 5:30 AM PT By Shobhana Chandra – bloomberg

    Payrolls in the U.S. climbed less than projected in August after smaller gains the prior two months, indicating companies are being deliberate in their hiring as they wait for a pickup in demand. The unemployment rate unexpectedly fell as more people left the labor force.

    The gain of 169,000 workers last month followed a revised 104,000 rise in July that was smaller than initially estimated, Labor Department figures showed today in Washington. The median forecast of 96 economists surveyed by Bloomberg called for an August increase of 180,000. Unemployment dropped to 7.3 percent, the lowest since December 2008.

    The weaker data come as Federal Reserve officials, who meet Sept. 17-18, are debating whether the expansion and job market have improved enough to warrant trimming monthly bond purchases. While some companies are awaiting a pickup in sales before adding to staff, Ford Motor Co. (F) is among those putting more workers on assembly lines as the auto industry surges.

    “Job growth will remain less than desirable until we see the pace of economic activity pick up,” Russell Price, a senior economist at Ameriprise Financial Inc. in Detroit, said before the report. “In this environment, businesses have to tread their way gingerly.”

    The unemployment rate, derived from a Labor Department survey of households rather than employers, was forecast to hold at 7.4 percent, according to the Bloomberg survey median.

      Remarks by President Obama in a Press Conference at the G20

      G20 Summit Site
      St. Petersburg, Russia

      5:55 P.M. MSK

      PRESIDENT OBAMA: Good evening. Let me begin by thanking President Putin and the people of St. Petersburg and the people of Russia for hosting this G20. This city has a long and storied history, including its heroic resistance and extraordinary sacrifices during the Second World War. So I want to take this opportunity to salute the people of St. Petersburg and express our gratitude for their outstanding hospitality.

      This summit marks another milestone in the world’s recovery from the financial crisis that erupted five years ago this month. Instead of the looming threat of another financial meltdown, we’re focused for the first time in many years on building upon the gains that we’ve made. For the first time in three years, instead of an urgent discussion to address the European financial crisis, we see a Europe that has emerged from recession.

      Moreover, the United States is a source of strength in the global economy. Our manufacturing sector is rebounding. New rules have strengthened our banks and reduced the chance of another crisis. We’re reducing our addiction to foreign oil and producing more clean energy. And as we learned today, over the past three and a half years, our businesses have created seven and a half million new jobs — a pace of more than 2 million jobs each year. We’ve put more people back to work, but we’ve also cleared away the rubble of crisis and laid the foundation for stronger and more durable economic growth.

      We’re also making progress in putting our fiscal house in order. Our deficits are falling at the fastest rate in 60 years. And as Congress takes up important decisions in the coming months, I’m going to keep making the case for the smart investments and fiscal responsibility that keep our economy growing, creates jobs and keeps the U.S. competitive. That includes making sure we don’t risk a U.S. default over paying bills we’ve already racked up. I’m determined that the world has confidence in the full faith and credit of the United States.

      Remarks by the President to Civil Society Leaders

      Crowne Plaza Hotel
      St. Petersburg, Russia

      7:31 P.M. MSK

      PRESIDENT OBAMA: I just want to say thank you to all the participants in this roundtable. This is an incredible and very diverse group of civil society leaders. And this is something that I really enjoy doing at every country that I visit because it is my firm belief that a country’s strength ultimately comes from its people and that as important as government is — and laws — what makes a country democratic and effective in delivering prosperity and security and hope to people is when they’ve got an active, thriving civil society.

      And all of these leaders, ranging from business leaders to youth leaders to environmental leaders, those who are advocating on behalf of a free press, the rule of law, all of them contribute in one way or another to continuing to strengthen Russian society and helping to make progress on behalf of all people.

      And the same is true in the United States. I’m now in government, but I got my start as a community organizer, somebody who was working in what would be called an NGO in the international community. And the work I was doing was helping poor communities have a voice in what was happening in their lives. And I got elected as President by engaging people at a grassroots level.

      So the kinds of activities that are represented here are critically important to Russia’s development, and I’m very proud of their work. And I think it is important for us to remember that in every country — here in Russia, in the United States, around the globe — that part of good government is making sure that we’re creating a space for civil society to function effectively: freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, making sure that people can join together and make common cause around the issues that they care deeply about.

      So I appreciate you taking the time. I’m not going to do all the talking here. I want to spend most of my time listening. But I want to thank you again and I hope all of you continue the good work.

      In Russia, Obama stresses freedom of press, assembly

      9/6/13 3:39 PM EDT By JENNIFER EPSTEIN – POLITICO44

      President Obama used a meeting Friday with Russian civil society groups to celebrate some of the freedoms that are central to America’s values but Vladimir Putin’s government had restricted.

      “It is important for us to remember that in every country — here in Russia, in the United States, around the globe — that part of good government is making sure that we’re creating a space for civil society to function effectively: freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, making sure that people can join together and make common cause around the issues that they care deeply about,” Obama told the groups that gathered at the St. Petersburg airport just before he headed back to Washington.

      Russia’s major news organizations are not seen as independent from the government’s views, and the issue of gay rights has proven particularly problematic heading into the 2014 Olympics in Sochi.

      The White House said the following leaders attended the meeting:

      1. Igor Kochetkov, Director, LGBT Network

      2. Pavel Chikov, Agora Association (Kazan) – Chairperson

      3. Yana Yakovleva, Founder, Business Solidarity
