Dear Amazing Bennett Families,

Each year, McKinney ISD seeks feedback from parents through a survey called the BrightBytes Survey. Please take 5 minutes to help our school make technology decisions. This is an anonymous survey regarding your technology use. It will take approximately five minutes to complete the survey. Your answers are very important!

Proud to be a BEAR,

Move More Tips for Getting Active:

1. Get out the leash and walk your dog.

2. Walk and talk. Take work and social calls on the go!

3. Mall walk. Don’t like the weather? Take a walk around your local mall instead.

4. Park further away from the store to get in some extra steps.

Benefits of Walking:

1. Improve your cholesterol

2. Lower your blood pressure

3. Increase your energy

4. Boost bone strength

5. Prevent weight gain

6. Manage stress
