Move It Outside Day - Sponsored By CB Cares and the Forty Assets
What makes one child grow up to be a strong, solid citizen, while another tests the limits of the law? The Search Institute, a non-profit, independent research organization, has identified 40 scientifically based experiences, relationships, opportunities, skills and character traits that have a powerful impact on a child’s life and the choices he/she makes. The more assets a child possesses, the better chance that child has of being successful.
On Friday, Doyle will celebrate two assets for our children: #5 Caring School Climate and #25 Reading for Pleasure. The purpose of Move It Outside Day is to encourage our children to turn off their electronic devices, computers, tablets, phones, and televisions, and get outside to play or read. The children will travel through various outside activities and culminate with a jog to the top of the Bike and Hike Path where they will receive a bookmark to encourage them to read.
We thank the CB Cares community for supporting this event with the purchase of a tetherball activity center. If you would like more information about the 40 Assets, click on this link:
