Did you know.....
- 96 percent of New York City elementary schools fail to meet the mandate for 120 minutes a week of phys ed?
- only 30 percent of NYC elementary schools have a certified physical education teacher on staff!
TAG Young Scholars is a unique and wonderful K-8 school in East Harlem. (It's where Mitchell goes to school!)
Phys Ed Plus (PEP) is a New York City nonprofit committed to getting phys ed programs back into city schools.
PEP provides certified Physical Education teachers to TAG for gym classes and recess periods. We are raising money through this event to fund this program for the coming school year. We don't receive the money from the NYC Dept of Education.
