WHAT IS HAPPENING IN HEALTH AND PE?

   Hello students, families, and community.  We will be studying alcohol, tobacco, and drugs soon. Encouraging your child to abstain from the use of these products can lead to many physical, social, and emotional advantages. Unfortunately, Kentucky is one of the leading states in the nation for tobacco use. Education concerning the consequences of the use and misuse of these products is vital to the health of our population. Ask your child what they have learned about the topic.
 
 
    In other news, Smart Snacks are still on sale most days. These snacks include items such as bananas, oranges, apples, string cheese, and water. Sales do not take place until after 1:30 p.m. All items are 50 cents each. Proceeds go toward purchasing new PE equipment, and possibly a PE field trip in the future. We have already purchased a new modified pull up bar for the Fitnessgram test, as well as some new sit up mats. The best part of all is having a healthy snack late in the day!
