Montessori Magnet students are participating in the UNICEF Kid Power Program, which is designed to give kids the power to end global malnutrition and save lives, one step at a time.
Students are wearing a UNICEF Kid Power Band, which tracks their steps and movement. The more they move, the more points they will earn to provide malnourished children with Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF). UNICEF uses RUTF to treat children suffering from severe acute malnutrition, a life-threatening condition that affects 16 million children worldwide.
This is a great opportunity for our students since active students are better learners. An independent evaluation of UNICEF Kid Power in Sacramento schools found that kids participating in the program were 55% more active than their peers not participating. Students who engage with Kid Power have also been shown to achieve recommended levels of moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) 44% more days than their peers.
Parents will be notified about acceptance into the Magnet program on April 5, 2018. For more information contact Dian Emrith @ 754-322-2900 or email@example.com
