Erie's Red Hawk Elementary recently was awarded a grant to develop an online class for teachers on incorporating more movement into the school day.
The $50,000, two-year Thriving Schools grant from Kaiser Permanente Colorado allows the school to continue work from a previous $100,000, two-year Thriving Schools grant, said Red Hawk Principal Cyrus Weinberger.
"We want to take a very successful model and scale it up," he said.
In the most recent round of Thriving Schools grants, sixteen Colorado school districts will receive a combined $968,080.
