The PTA Health & Wellness committee has been busy this summer planning several exciting programs for the students this school year. We are all so busy with work, school, family committments, sports and the lists goes on and on. Therefore, our motto this year is “healthy bodies, healthy minds.”
The programs and activities that we selected are with the committment that Northwood students continue to be healthy and active. We hope that are students learn to relax and take a deep breath through yoga and meditation. To get our kids moving, we plan to provide a jazzercise program and family swim nights during the winter months. In the spring, we will implement a walking program during lunch that will allow the students to set personal walking goals and achieve them. A free fall bike ride/walk is being planned that will encourage walking or riding while enjoying the scenery of a designated bike trail. We also plan to have a nutrition expert speak with the students and provide an educational evening for parents.
The Health & Wellness committee has several other programs or events in the planning stages. We will pass this along in future notices.
The Health & Wellness committee is always looking for new members who bring with them the committment to maintain the health & safety of our Northwood students.
