similar to chip readers. one local school district is trying to change the culture of how students celebrate birthdays. it's an effort trading in treats for physical activity. real milwaukee's brian kramp shows us how the new celebrations are making for a happier and healthier student body. physical education here at port washingtons lincoln elementary for 5 years. the nicest thing is that the kids really like movement and they like coming to gym. but this is no ordinary gym class. ok, power-skipping jump as high as you can. so this is just a normal routine for them. and theres nothing normal about
4:17 pm
birthdays. in the past kids would bring a treat and that was fine, but were trying to eliminate the amount of treats that we have. what? no more birthday cake?!?! surely the kids wont go for that, or will they? so far this year about 75% of our students chose the activity and the prize over the treat. the activities are one of the main reasons this is happening, plus the entire kids can choose and extra recess, they can choose and indoor recess, extra computer lab time, they could line up first all day, there the just dance you tube videos. from the looks of the dance party in lincoln elementarys first grade classroom, the kids seem to be doing just fine without treats. it gives them what theyre calling now brain breaks. so brain breaks are getting kids up getting kids moving and then
4:18 pm
taking these active brain breaks the kids are more in tune and pay attention better. the classroom teachers have been really happy about it. the parents have been telling me how happy they are about it and the kids are excited about it. the kids excitement doubles because if they choose not to bring in a birthday treat they also get to pick a prize. we call it the birthday basket. weve got playground balls, yo-yos, frisbees, jump ropes and bracelets. with grants from kohls healthy families program and the american cancer society mr. andersons class and all of the schools in the port washington district have been making healthier choices. money for us to try to make a change to try to make us healthier and we chose water butt filling stations. you can fill up a water bottle and we try to put a highlight on drinking more water in our district. the schools received four brand new filling stations, water bottles and money for birthday basket prizes. without having the prize i dont think the kids would choose the activity as much as they are so
4:19 pm
that has made small, but essential changes in the schools and the way they the kids perceive health and celebrate life. its not hard to motivate kids when you have things that motivate them. and kids are going up to other kids saying, 'yeah, its your birthday because of you were out here.' so its really cool." that was our brian kramp reporting. greg hopes to see this program grow to schools statewide - especially at the elementary level. ad lib about pkg coming up o four... it's the true story of one of the most incredible injury-comebacks in sports. gino salomone sits down with a star in the new movie "bleed for this" to talk about bringing her role
