  • Attention Students/Parents:

     

    While we know it is important to practice social distancing, we have to remember how important it is to stay active.  You/your children should be active for at least 60 minutes in a day.  Please try to find a way to make sure that you/your child is getting that hour in. To make it more convenient for you all, I have attached fitness logs for to print out at home, if you're able to.  If you are unable to, no worries, just keep a log in a notebook/scrap paper.

  • The Most Important Hour of Your Day

     It’s a fact: physical activity helps to keep you healthy. But sometimes, physical activity can seem like hard work! But did you know that with at least 60 minutes a day of physical activity you can experience most of the health benefits? And it’s worth it.

     Here are four important benefits of physical activity.

    1. Did you know that physical activity boosts mental wellness? Participating in regular physical activity can relieve anxiety and depression. You may not only notice a "feel good sensation" immediately following your physical activity, but most people also note an improvement in general well-being as physical activity becomes a part of their daily routine.

     2. Did you know you could learn better in school if you participate in physical activity? Research shows that students who are regularly physically active tend to do better on academic tests and in class.

     3. Did you know that physical activity can make you healthier? Physical activity can help lower the risk of heart disease, overweight and obesity, and type 2 diabetes.

     4. Did you know physical activity may prolong your optimal health? Regular physical activity helps the body stay strong and function well. One study suggests that people who are physically active and at a healthy weight live on average about seven years longer than those who are not active and are obese.
