MSBA'S SAFE SURFACING PROGRAM RECEIVES GOVERNOR'S COUNCIL ENDORSEMENT

 

The Governor's Council on Physical Fitness and Health recently endorsed the Missouri Playground Surfacing Program. This program is a partnership between the Missouri School Boards' Association (MSBA) and the National Safe Surfacing Initiative, LLC (NSSI) in an effort to promote physical fitness and health through safe playgrounds for Missouri's school children.

The Governor's Council on Physical Fitness and Health is committed to improving the fitness and health of all Missourians. This Council reviews and endorses activities which promote physical fitness and health throughout the state of Missouri.

The Missouri Playground Surfacing Program recognizes that childhood fitness begins at an early age when young people first start out to challenge their minds and bodies in ways that require both mental and physical fortitude. Through this program, childcare centers and elementary schools are able to provide healthier play and fitness environments for young children, preparing them for more physical challenges in the years ahead.

"We are delighted to be part of this effort to reduce injuries and accidents on school playgrounds," says MSBA Executive Director Dr. Carter Ward. "The NSSI is a nationally-recognized company that is committed to improving student safety. We are very pleased that the Governor's Council on Physical Fitness and Health has chosen to endorse this important program."
