A before school walking program designed to let students begin each day in an active, healthy and fun way.
The program will begin on Thursday, September 15, 2016
and will run the remainder of the school year. Walking will be cancelled
on days when the weather does not permit.
TIME: 7:45 AM to 8:05 AM -
Monday, and Tuesday - 2nd and 3rd grade
Thursday and Friday 4th and 5th grade
Walking will not occur on Wednesday mornings.
WHERE: The students will be dismissed from the cafeteria to go to the gym beginning at 7:45 AM.
WHY: To promote an active healthy lifestyle starting at a young age.
Who: All students in grades 2nd through 5th are invited! This is a voluntary program. Children participate only if they desire to do so.
CES staff will supervise the program. The students will attempt to complete as many laps as they are comfortable with each morning. The laps will be totaled and students will be rewarded as they accumulate miles. Providing children the opportunity to exercise each morning not only works to fight childhood obesity, it allows students to expend youthful energy on the field leaving them more likely to sit still and focus once the school day begins. It's a win-win for everyone involved and CES is thrilled to promote fitness and all the great benefits that go with it.
