Spring is in the Air, and in Your Step, Thanks to GoNoodle!

| Posted by | Categories: Our Community, Your YRMC

During the school day, on evenings, weekends, and even during spring break, kids in western Yavapai County are up and moving with GoNoodle, thanks to a generous sponsorship from Yavapai Regional Medical Center. In fact, April numbers are in, and we are looking good!

During the month of April, 139 local classroom teachers were active on GoNoodle. This translates to 3,443 Quad-City students and 163,725 minutes of physical activity for the month of April! Congratulations to Liberty Traditional School, the top user during the month of April, with 351 games and videos played. A shout out goes to Taylor Hicks Elementary, Granville ElementaryHumboldt Elementary and Mountain View Elementary, who were close runners-up!

To date, 33 schools in the YRMC service area have active GoNoodle users. Is your school on the list?

Nationally, three out of four elementary schools use the games and videos offered on GoNoodle.com to give students the brain breaks they need, make subject transitions seamless and energize or calm their students.

Thanks to the YRMC sponsorship, more and more families are using GoNoodle at home as well. All it takes is an email address and a password that you create and you’re ready to access the same video and game libraries that your kids use at school. This means parents can turn at-home screen time into active time. They can also use GoNoodle to burn off extra energy on bad weather days, or to calm their kids down before bedtime. Families are even finding new opportunities to have fun while exercising together.

YRMC’s sponsorship of GoNoodle for the schools and families in our community is one of the many examples of how our not-for-profit healthcare provider enhances the quality of life in western Yavapai County.
