Coach Larry Calhoun leads East Webster Elementary prekindergarten through second-grade students and teachers in simple movement exercises in the school’s gym. The star of the Move to Learn exercise break videos introduced them to the initiative last Thursday, giving a separate demonstration to students in grades 3-5. The Bower Foundation is partnering with the Mississippi Department of Education’s Office of Healthy Schools to improve the health of students statewide through the program. Move to Learn was designed to be fun for students, improve learning and assist teachers with classroom management.
