BOKS (Build Our Kids Success)

We are pleased to announce BOKS (Build our Kids Success), a before school physical activity program, at the Peabody School will return this fall. BOKS prepares children for a day of learning and is an important step in helping children gain an appreciation of the benefits of exercise and healthy choices that will last a lifetime. BOKS was inspired by Dr. John Ratey’s book “Spark”. Dr. Ratey, of Harvard Medical School, states, “exercise is the single most powerful tool that we have to optimize the function of our brains.” Classes are filled with team-oriented games and provide plenty of opportunity for play, since the program focuses on fun!
Typical BOKS Class
• 40 minutes long
• Fun warm-up game or movement drills
• Running activity, relay races, obstacle courses and strength movements
• Fun game
• Cool down and a BOKS Bit- a nutrition component of the program
When is BOKS?
BOKS will run every Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8:00am to 8:45am. Facilitated by Mr. P and Peabody Parent, Paula Akiba and Former Peabody Parent, Jesselyn Opie
