As part of the Make Moves Maryland campaign, we're encouraging you to move more throughout the day even when you don't have time to hit the gym. Regular activity helps you focus and improves brain function so you can perform better in and out of the classroom.


We want to see how you make moves. So, go ahead, make your move Maryland!


April 14 -28, 2014
