She develops and facilitates school- and community-based activities such as an annual field day; a morning walking program for students, parents, and faculty; and health seminars for parents and the community. In addition, Ms. Moffitt has her students build their writing skills by maintaining a journal about the importance of health and fitness.

Ms. Moffitt is chair of the School Improvement Team, a member of the district's Health and Physical Education Curriculum Committee, and president of the Rhode Island Association of Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance.
