Let’s get our Scholars out into Nature!
Raising our scholars is not just about abc’s and 123’s. We want them to have sound minds and sound bodies. They need to get outside to play, explore and expand their horizons. If they play well, they will learn well. First Lady, Michelle Obama is leading the way with her Let’s Move! Initiative
President Obama has joined her with the “Every Kid in a Park” program. Through this program, all 4th graders and their families get free admission to National Parks and other federal lands and waters for a full year through August 2016.
Visit Acadia National Park in Maine, Virgin Islands National Park, Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming or the Grand Canyon.
Take your scholar to visit African American Historical sites such as the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site, the Martin Luther King, Jr., National Historic Site, the Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park, or Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve.
There is so much to explore, let’s go!
