Research Review Series
Research and Evaluation invites you to the first Research Review for this school year, "Commit to Get Fit", presented by Brett Fuller from the Department of Curriculum and Instruction, Kristin Kappelman from the Department of Innovation Development, Dr. David Nelson from the Medical College of Wisconsin, Dr. Chris Simenz from Marquette University, and Eric J. Brown from the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Milwaukee.
"Commit to Get Fit" is an interactive session to learn more about a collaborative research project focused on improving the physical fitness outcomes of our youth. Presenters will describe the Passport to Lifetime Fitness program, where participating MPS students receive both high-quality physical education instruction during the school day and a physical fitness intervention in the afterschool setting. Attendees will be given the opportunity to participate in the similar activities that students do.
Please join us on Monday, January 29th from 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM in Room 102 at Washington High School, 2525 N. Sherman Blvd. All are welcome to attend.
