Fit Kids At School

Flagstaff Medical Center and its children’s wellness program, Fit Kids of Arizona, recently invested an unprecedented $1 million with the Flagstaff Unified School District to launch a new health and wellness initiative called Fit Kids at School

Flagstaff Medical Center's investment in Fit Kids at School is focused on long-term community health promotion. The new program will be officially rolled out district-wide to all 10 FUSD elementary schools on Sept. 17. 

The initiative has enabled Marshall Magnet School to hire Anna Hudson as our newest staff member to lead structured health and fitness activities throughout the school day beginning next week, including structured play during recesses and an extra 30-minute physical education class for each grade level once a week. These enhancements to our existing health and physical education curriculum will increase students’ physical activity from 35 minutes per week to more than 270 minutes per week. 

For more information about Fit Kids at School, please call Allison Mitkowski at (928) 214-3546.
