October 2016 

It’s the middle of October, and fitness testing is almost done.  Congratulations to all of our 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders for their perseverance and spirit!  As seriously as we take these tests, we discuss the fact that the truly important issue is not our test scores, but the activity we do every day, in and out of school, to keep fit and healthy.  Biking, hiking, jump rope, dancing, swimming, climbing, sports, walking the dog, and good nutrition - are examples of things we can do to stay fit.  One great way for students to track their physical activity is to complete the fitness calendar which we handed out earlier this month.  October’s calendar is due on October 28th, so there’s plenty of time to complete it. 

Third, Fourth and Fifth Graders: To see your fitness scores and set goals:
