Physical Activity Tips
Families Can Move Together

Get in the holiday spirit by adding physical activity to your family festivities! Share our fun ideas to get families moving together:
1. Family Physical Activity Night  
Designate a weekly "Family Fitness Day." Pick a physical activity (i.e. walking, bicycling, jogging, etc.) that everyone can enjoy.  

2. Exercise Video Night
When there's a chill in the air, invite the entire family to warm up with an exercise DVD. Families that sweat together are healthy together!

3. Family Choice Night
Take turns having each family member select their favorite physical activity, and everyone participates.

4. Active Commercial Breaks 
During each commercial, challenge each family member to complete a round of moves (i.e. 10 jumping jacks, 20 air jump ropes, 20 sit ups, 15 squats, 10 push-ups, 15 lunges).

Sample Day BIG Success!

The rainbow carrots were such a hit that we ran out!  Ms. Ely had to go to Taylor Elementary to get more.  Thanks so much to all our parent volunteers that came to help pass out samples!  Students who sampled the carrots earned a STAR for the Dallas Stars Fitness Program.

Garden Info

We will be doing garden maintenance this Saturday, Nov. 8 from 8:00-10:00am. We will be removing the tiny weeds that have popped up everywhere and cleaning the garden areas. We would love any helping hands (kids can help too!). The more hands, the quicker we'll be done. I have some garden tools we can use. Please bring your garden gloves if you have them. I have kid size gloves but not many adult size gloves.  See this link
