Staying Active : Health Tip

Exercise is one of the best things you can do for your mind, body and spirit. Here are 3 good reasons to exercise:

Exercising burns calories, which can help you lose weight or maintain weight loss. You don’t need to set aside a big chunk of time, 20 minutes a day or even 10 is better than nothing

Can improve your mood. Physical activity stimulates various brain chemicals that may leave you feeling happier; more relaxed and have a higher self-esteem.

Exercise also gives you more energy during the day and helps you sleep better at night. Physical activity boosts your endurance which makes your cardio vascular system more efficient.

So get out there and pick something that is fun which will also be a great model for your kids to see and do as well.

Third Quarter Preview

Primary: During the 3rd quarter we will be working mainly on manipulative skills. This quarter will focus on throwing and catching. We will be practicing during the first part of class and then playing fun games that incorporate those two skills.

Intermediate: During the Third quarter we will be learning the skills for basketball and gymnastics. During those games we will be looking for good teamwork and sportsmanship.

Parent Reminder

Students are expected to dress appropriately (sneakers, comfortable clothes, no earrings that dangle past earlobes). If a parent wants their child to wear earrings that do hang past the earlobe, then they just need to send a note in to me stating that they allow their child to wear those earrings. If student is not prepared, it can effect their grade if it happens 3 or more times in a quarter.
