 JAM (Just A Minute)

The JAM school program brings physical activity and health into the classroom. JAM is designed to teach kids (and adults) healthier lifestyle habits. JAMmin’ Minute is a one-minute fitness routine that includes 5 very simple exercises that kids (and staff) can do while either standing at their desk or sitting in a chair. Included on this weekly communication is a health tip, something simple that teaches a healthier habit.
