   Step 5: Keep Going!
   We know that some schools are already doing great things to support and promote physical activity. The Good For Kids Guiding Principles can assist
   schools to acknowledge the excellent programs they currently have in place, and plan for additional programs.

   The Good for Kids resource folder insert* will include information about going further, and will encourage schools to look for additional ways to
   promote physical activity through the school environment and the broader community.
