Participating Schools

Recess feels safer and I have more fun. Last year I never looked forward to recess. Now I do.

WITS Coach Jamel took the Coach for Kids program further than years prior at CS 55 during this pandemic year. CS 55 came to Wellness in the Schools with a specific challenge: they had issues getting their students to stay focused and engaged during their remote math classes. More specifically, a teacher mentioned her students were having trouble with division. Coach Jamel and WITS Chef Ricardo joined their virtual nutrition and fitness activities to include fun lessons of division! This interactive and educational method became a tradition as it proved to increase focus and accountability within all their remote classes. WITS FIT BITS were not only taught as fitness breaks during remote learning but also collaborated with the classroom teacher’s lessons to help improve attention during the entire school day.
