BEFORE SCHOOL PHYSICAL FITNESS FOR 4TH and 5TH GRADERS

Dear Parents,

We are going to be doing something new here at Hughston that we are very excited about! Starting on September 22nd, EVERY OTHER WEEK on Tuesdays and Thursday mornings, we are offering an opportunity for 4th and 5th grade students to come to the gym before the start of the school day, to participate in a physical activity. At 7:10 a.m., Coach Pirillo will collect any students from the cafeteria who would like to come to the gym to participate. If students arrive after this time they will not be allowed to join us, since we cannot have the students walking through the hallways unattended. This opportunity will allow the students to get their brains prepared for the upcoming day. We are hoping to expand to more days in the future, but wanted to start with just a few days to see how it goes. We really hope you will encourage your children to attend the morning workout sessions with Coach Pirillo!

GET UP AND ACTIVE!

We would really love to see our families being active together, so we came up with a fun idea! Visit our special’s page: https://sites.google.com/a/pisd.edu/hughston-specials/home and click on the Physical Education tab and then the Parent tab. Here you will find some great information!

Now is the time for your family to get started on a family fitness program at home! The best news is it won't cost you anything but some time! You will find 4 different "dance" videos created by.....you guessed it, Coach Pirillo! These videos are easy to follow along with, much like the popular "Just Dance" games on game consoles. The good thing is..... you will know the guy leading you! Once you have completed the videos, please fill out the Google Form at the bottom of the page to print off a certificate of completion. Bring the printed certificate to school, and give it to one of the coaches. We will display it on the wall outside of the gym, to show everyone that your family is being active!
