In 2009, Apryl Krakovsky, a mom of two kids at Overland Elementary, thought of an idea to start off the school day with a bit of physical activity. Nothing too complicated—just a simple 15-minute start to the day where kids could move around and have fun. Through her passion and resourcefulness, Apryl was able to make the idea a reality. Three years later, Apryl still leads the program, now called Overland in Motion, before school every day. Students, along with teachers and staff, gather outside of the school and follow dance and movement routines led by Apryl and other students. The goal of the program is simple: to move more.
