Would you like to get some fitness this winter break? If so, please complete this winter break challenge. The class that has the highest percentage of participation will earn an extra 30 minutes of fun fitness in the gym with just their class. Enjoy your winter break and GET SOME FITNESS! The last day to complete the form is January 2, 2012 HUT HUT! PARENT NOTE: Children and adolescents need to get 60 or more minutes of physical activity each day. This should include a combination of moderate-intensity aerobic activity, such as brisk walking, and vigorous-intensity activity, such as running. Activities that increase the heart rate, making conversations difficult while moving, are considered to be moderate to vigorous physical activities. Be sure to include vigorous-intensity aerobic activity on at least three days per week. Another way for you to determine if you are getting the U.S. Surgeon General’s recommendation for daily physical activity is to strive for at least 10,000 steps a day!
To submit your fitness over the break, click the link below!
We are proud to announce that the district nutrition dept. will be hosting “Fresh Fruit Fridays” each Friday until we get out for the holidays. During breakfast (7:20- 7:50), our staff and students are invited to enjoy free fresh fruit in the café. You can eat all you want during breakfast, and then take some with you for later. Students will be allowed to do the same. This will be great modeling for what types of snacks should be brought in for snack time.
|Thanks Ms. Yoder! You are awesome!!!!|

Anderson is so happy to be a Healthy Zone- In Training School. Our first healthy opportunity is the Marathon Kids program. Children run or walk the distance of a full marathon (26.2 miles) over the course of their school year, in increments of ¼ or ½ mile. All Marathon Kids keep a 1 page mileage/food log, supervised by their parents, to track their progress. These forms can be found on the Anderson Web-page under Thursday Folder. Please bring the signed permission form back to the gym as soon as possible. Without this form we can’t order your t-shirt, which will be given to you in May. We will also but your name up on the Marathon Kids poster so that you can track your progress.
