BOKS, Build Our Kids' Success

 BOKS (Build Our Kids’ Success) started as a before school physical activity program designed for elementary school children to get them moving in the morning so as to have a more productive school day. The inspiration for BOKS came from the book “Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain” by Harvard Medical School professor Dr. John Ratey. In this book, Dr. Ratey essentially notes that exercise is like medicine for the brain. Given that children are sitting for 6-8 hours during school, starting the day with a program like BOKS gives kids a body and brain boost that will prepare them for a day of learning. To help with this endeavor, BOKS has created FREE curriculum materials and tools to leverage volunteers, whether they be parents, teachers or community members. The free curriculum which began as a 12-week functional movement curriculum has expanded to included early childhood and middle school. The BOKS program is not a replacement for physical education, but is designed to increase children’s physical activity with a focus on having fun through non-competitive play.

Since its inception in 2009, BOKS has seen tremendous growth and there are over 2,200 enrolled schools across the U.S., Canada and Japan. Colorado has embraced BOKS with 185 enrolled schools. The success of BOKS is often due to finding a passionate individual to run the program.
