BRAND NEW RESOURCE
Healthy Kids! by Monett R-1 Schools
>> Main topics:
The outdoor walk/biking pictures are from the programs two "Walk/Bike to School events", one on April 18th - 22nd, and one May 9th - 13th for the whole district. The other pictures are from two separate events, both titled "Healthy Kids/Field Days", in conjunction with our year end Field Days, where students were provided with a Healthy Kids day to bring in presenters and activities from yoga and meditation, to good nutrition, to wilderness safety, first/aid safety and summer safety to our 3th - 6th grade students. These happened at our Central Park Elementary campus, and Monett Intermediate campus.
>> Main topics: I love to play! My belief is that if adults spent less time on their screens, the impact would be contagious. Families with active parents often have active children. If you are not a parent, you can still be a role model. The next time you supervise recess, join in and play with the students. The next time you are at the playground, climb up and use the slide. The next time you are going for a walk, invite your neighbor, friend, or family member.
