The Wellness Team at Budlong Elementary School is continuously working toward improving overall school wellness! Like many other schools, Budlong has created Brain Break Kits for all classroom teachers. In order to ensure that all teachers are integrating physical activity into the classroom, the Wellness Team has created a checklist to hold teachers accountable and to monitor which teachers are doing brain breaks on a daily basis. Teachers at Budlong are also expected to lead brain breaks for staff during meetings or professional development. This is a great way to share and practice different activities that can be used in your classroom!


In addition to daily brain breaks, Budlong starts every morning with a school wide Calm Classroom exercise. This is a great way to get students energized and focused to start the day! They also offer extra PE class as an incentive for healthy fundraising events such as the walk-a-thon, Jump Rope for Heart, and Hoops for Heart. It is clear that Budlong has successfully implemented a strong CSPAP, as physical activity is evident in almost every component of the school!
