JCPRD Madison News
With the temps getting colder, please help your child make sure he/she has a coat, hat, gloves for cool weather and appropriate shoes for going outside or to the gym. Tennis shoes really allow your child to participate in every activity we plan! We will go outside most days during the winter, even if it is just for 10 minutes.
Don't forget to follow @JCPRDGardnerOST on Twitter for up-to-date emergency closing procedures as well as pictures of your kids in action in our Out of School TIme program!

Getting Healthy Information
We know that kids who eat healthier and move more perform better in school. It's not just because teachers and administrators tell us so. Research shows that healthy kids get better grades, attend school more often and behave better in class.
Experts recommend that kids get 60 minutes of physical activity every day. These minutes can come before, during, or after school as long as kids are staying active and having fun!
