October, 2020

Dear Families,

Welcome back to another year in our LifeSPAN (Life Sustaining Physical Activity & Nutrition) program! This year will look a bit different than previous years with virtual lessons, but we're excited to "see" your kids again and can't wait until we are able to be back in the classrooms. For now, we will be meeting with your kids' classrooms virtually. We will be keeping you updated throughout the year with E-Newsletters, and would love for you to check out our Facebook page. where we have been posting book read-alouds, recipe demos, and other nutrition and physical activity information.
