The constructs of health and wellness, physical literacy, and sport not in harmony with one another.

The Power of 30 Seconds
Dr. Joe Sanfelippo, Superintendent Fall Creek School District 
February 18, 7:00 pm

960. That is the number of 30-second increments we get in an 8 hour day. 960 chances to change a life. 960 opportunities to share a story. 960 times to make a student, parent, or community member feel like they are part of your school. Moments have the ability to stick in our brains forever. A sight, smell, or taste brings us back to our childhood. We have a responsibility to be intentional about how we utilize these moments. The fact is simply this...you will be remembered, the only question is how. Every 30 seconds matter.
