BOKS Welcome Letter

BOKS Fall Registration Form

We are pleased to announce the registration for BOKS, a physical activity program, at Kennedy Middle School this fall. 

BOKS prepares children for a day of learning and is an important step in helping children gain an appreciation of the benefits of exercise and healthy choices that will last a lifetime. BOKS was inspired by Dr. John Ratey’s book “Spark”. Dr. Ratey, of Harvard Medical School, states that “exercise is the single most powerful tool that we have to optimize the function of our brains.” 

Classes are filled with team-oriented games and provide plenty of opportunity for play, since the program focuses on fun! 

Typical BOKS 

  • Class 30 minutes long 
  • Fun warm-up game or movement drills 
  • Running activity, relay races, obstacle courses and strength movements
  • Fun game Cool down and a BOKS Bit- a nutrition component of the program 

When is BOKS? BOKS will begin the week of September 29 and run until December 21 and run every Monday and Wednesday morning from 7:10am to 7:40am. 

How do I sign up? Complete the BOKS Fall Registration Form for each child and make sure to sign the last page. Approximately 25 children may participate in the session and the participants will be chosen based on a lottery. 

Is there transportation for BOKS? Parents will be responsible for transporting their children to school. Children who attend a before school program are eligible to enroll and participate. 

You can also visit the BOKS website at www.bokskids.org for more program details. I hope that you will share my enthusiasm for this program and you will, in turn, see a positive impact on your children.
