Communities Off n' Funning - a local non profit organization dedicated to getting kids, families and communities up, out and active - is excited to announce the launch of Monster Up with BOKS, a before school physical activity program being offered to kids from grades K-5. Working under the premise Active Kids = Active Minds, our goal is to get kids moving in the morning and prepared for a day of learning. Classes are filled with team-oriented games and provide plenty of opportunity for play, since the program focuses on FUN!

Studies in Georgia, Illinois and California have shown that students who exercised
significantly improved their intelligence test scores and core subjects at school,
compared to their inactive counterparts.*

*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."
