I am writing to say how beneficial two school health programs were for my second-grade students during the past school year.

My students did the Move More program, which incorporates 20 minutes of exercise three times weekly. They also did the Brain Gym program, which was 20 minutes of specific exercises that the physical education teacher did with them.

I saw the benefits of both these programs as my students were better able to focus on academics as a result of having movement in the classroom. Reading, handwriting and spelling levels increased for all students during the school year.

I ask the state legislators to restore this valuable program to our students and schools.
