PEHP in March!
Hopefully an early spring is on the way, since Coach Cowan and Doc 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 you the proper energy to get your day started right!
In Coach Cowan’s classes in March, he will focus on neurological activities to help with coordination. Students will be doing exercises that specifically target using their brains in conjunction with hands and feet. This is a difficult skill to master for most of the students and will be a good test for them.
In March Doc Rachel and the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders will be discussing healthy teeth, nutrition, and hydration, as well as how to keep our bones, joints, and muscles strong. The 4th, 5th, and 6th graders learn about our gastrointestinal system and how the kidneys work, too. All classes will learn stretches and exercises that make healthy bones, joints, muscles. Don’t forget the music! I love hearing the kids sing!
Let’s hope our March luck holds out for more great weather!
