Sherwood Elementary School in Edmonds has been awarded a 2017 Let’s Move! National Award for its outstanding efforts in creating an active school environment, thanks to the hard work and dedication of physical education teacher Pamela Thain.

The award is the nation’s top physical education and physical activity distinction for K-12 schools. It celebrates a school’s commitment to integrating at least 60 minutes of physical activity before, during and after the school day.

Only 452 schools across the country achieved this honor for 2017.

To earn a Let’s Move! Active Schools National Award, a school must have met significant benchmarks in five areas: physical education; physical activity before and after school; physical activity during school; staff involvement; and family and community engagement.
