  • Keep Kids Moving

    Posted by Amanda Freeman on 11/2/2017

    Many parents and kids think of organized sports when they think of fitness. Though there are many advantages to signing a child up for the softball team, practice and games once or twice a week will not be enough to reach activity goals. In addition, parents can no longer rely on physical education in the schools to provide enough physical activity for kids.

    Here are some ways to keep your kids moving at home: 

    • Incorporate physical activity into the daily routine. From household chores to an after-dinner walk, keep your family active every day.
    • Allow enough time for free play. Kids can burn more calories and have more fun when left to their own devices. Playing tag, riding bikes around the neighborhood, and building snowmen are fun and healthy.
    • Keep a variety of games and sports equipment on hand. It doesn’t have to be expensive – an assortment of balls, hula-hoops, and jump ropes can keep kids busy for hours.
    • Be active together. It’ll get you moving and kids love to play with their parents.
    • Limit time spent in sedentary activities, such as watching TV, going online, and playing video games.

     When you have exhausted the possibilities at home, take advantage of local playgrounds and athletic fields. Make family fitness outings part of your regular routine. Let family members choose an activity – go hiking, ice skating, or try out the rock-climbing gym. Anything goes, as long as everyone can participate.

    You can help show your kids that exercise is important by regularly exercising yourself.

  • Current Address and Phone Number

    Posted by Vickie Norton on 7/31/2017

     

    It is absolutely imperative that we have a current telephone number and address on all of our students.  Please notify the school office immediately if a telephone number or address changes during the course of the year.  If you do not have a personal telephone, please provide the number of a neighbor, friend, relative, or work number.  Because emergencies arise in the school environment, we must have a means of contacting every child's parent or legal guardian.
