Physical activity initiatives targeting the participation of all members of a school’s community are proposed as partial solutions to getting children physically active for 60 minutes each day. Integrating whole-school programs can be a daunting task; however, in this article, we share tips from physical activity leaders at three schools and found that combining resources is a way to manage this task. This article briefly describes the CSPAP and HSP programs and presents suggestions for the successful integration of school-wide physical activity from school personnel with first-hand experience attempting this type of school culture change.
