Build Our Kids' Success [BOKS]

This looks very interesting: 

BOKS is a FREE physical activity program that improves our children physically, mentally and socially by strengthening their minds and bodies through movement. BOKS hopes to empower school communities to improve our children mentally, physically and socially by strengthening their minds and bodies through movement in order to reverse the worldwide pandemic of physical inactivity and its crippling effects.

The New York Times (2/14, Subscription Publication) reports a “supervised exercise program that gets young children running and playing for an hour before school could make them happier and healthier, while also jibing with the needs and schedules of parents and school officials, according to a new study involving two dozen elementary and middle schools.” The program has “gained a formal curriculum, a name and acronym, Build Our Kids’ Success (BOKS).” The findings were published online in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.
