Mornings in Motion is a before school fitness program at Willow Brook Elementary in Oak Ridge, TN. The program is conducted in partnership with Oak Ridge Schools' Coordinated School Health, Willow Brook Elementary and Next Level Training. This program has helped us say goodbye to your ordinary Bus Hall and has 200-300 kids every Monday, Wednesday and Friday constantly moving for 30 minutes in a variety of ways including aerobics, plyometrics, and active stretching. No matter what the child's personal fitness level or athletic ability, every child is moving and every child is successful. No waiting in line or sitting in this program. This program is reshaping the students of the Willow Brook community while adding more physical activity to the busy school day.

Through Your Lens is a collaboration of The 21st Century School Fund, Critical Exposure, and Healthy Schools Campaign to raise awareness of the need to fund school buildings that support learning and provide a safe, healthy environment for students and teachers.

By sharing photos and stories of what they see every day at school, students and teachers provide us all with an honest window into today’s school buildings.

Vote for you favorite photos here! Voting will be open until March 17, 2011, with the winning photos will be announced on March 25, 2011.
