    The links below are a few examples of the resources students can utilize to stay healthy and fit:

    The students with your assistance and support will be able to achieve many of the goals they set for themselves.  They will create individualized personal fitness and nutrition plans/portfolios - through games and activities assigned within their Google Classroom and their Seesaw accounts, which I hope they will share with you.   I am very proud of them and all that they have achieved during this difficult time.  The links below I hope they will continue to use to help support their positive health choices:

    The students will be able to choose from activities assigned in Physical Education/ Health classes – 5th through 8th grade that they have a personal interest in.  Students have created workout routines for the other students to follow - demonstrating leadership and exemplary skills.   The students will have the opportunity to support each other and will be guided through this process by many of the adults within their lives.  Thank you and best wishes for a safe and fun new year.
