PEP is intended to initiate, expand, or enhance the physical education in after school programs for students in 1st through 8th grades.  Students who participate in the CARES program are a part of the 4 fitness weeks within the school year.  During these fitness weeks, students enjoy a week filled with physical activities including running a mile, using a pedometer to track their steps daily and participation in a healthy culminating event (usually a smoothie party) to celebrate their physical fitness achievements.
