Montana elementary classroom teachers are invited to attend the Montana Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (MTAHPERD) conference that will be held August 9-10 at Capital High School in Helena.  In response to elementary teacher requests for classroom physical activities, the MTAHPERD is offering an elementary educator tract that includes physical activity and 'brain breaks' into the classroom environment.  Presenters from nation and state levels will provide attendees with strategies designed to involve physical activity in the classroom that improves classroom behavior and increases student attention.
