Hopefully an early spring is on the way, since Coach Cowan and Dr. Rachel are loving having more of our PEHP classes OUTSIDE. We get to emphasize movement and health while getting fresh air and a little sunshine!
Please remember the importance of having a healthy breakfast every morning. Encourage your children to try the “3 out of 5 rule” and choose 1) a grain, 2) a fruit or vegetable, and 3) a milk product or protein to give the proper energy to get your day started right!
In Coach Cowan’s classes in March, he will continue to address coordination and agility, as well as integrating neurological control with activities and exercises. He is getting a great response and seeing a lot of improvement with the activities so far and plans to keep working with the students to see how far they can progress. As always, time at the end of class is for the students’ favorite games.
In March Dr. Rachel will be discussing intellectual wellness and social wellness with the 4th, 5th, and 6th graders. We will discuss how physical activity is tied to brain health, as well as how friendships and personal connections can keep our bodies and minds healthy. The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders will learn how to keep their teeth healthy and how that relates to overall health. All grades will participate in special Diabetes Awareness activities during PEHP on the 16th and 17th.
Let’s hope our March luck holds out for more great weather!
