If you wish to opt out of BMI, we need a note and current physical on file.
BMI screening will begin after winter break.
This is a reminder to please let us know if your child has been diagnosed with
Covid, Strep, or Flu so we may track any trends of increased illness.

Undiagnosed/New rash. Please see an MD for diagnosis prior to returning to school.

Physical Literacy - Move to Learn 👟
Physical Literacy–Move to Learn!!
Physical literacy is essential for elementary school students as it not only helps them develop fundamental motor skills like running, jumping, and throwing but also fosters a love for physical activity. Physical literacy enhances a child’s self-confidence and social interaction which helps to contribute to a well-rounded and confident individual. Physical literacy enhances students’ cognitive development, fostering improved concentration, problem-solving skills, and overall academic performance.
Here are two new activities to encourage your child to move. It's even more fun when you play together!
"Oh Rats" is a link to a short family exercise video that can be completed in a few minutes. If you enjoy this, the Bowman family has many more to play!
Active for Life has created a recipe for an active day. Challenge your family to work through the list at your own pace.
