FITNESSGRAM…..

Hi Everyone,
I hope you are as excited for Spring Break as we are ~ it’s a great time to get out with the family and friends to MOVE and EXERCISE while having some fun. Speaking of FUN, we have just finished our FITNESS PARTY in PE….. your scores will be coming home with report cards at the end of the school year. Our JRFH prizes have not arrived yet, but we are looking for them DAILY!

Our SPORTSATHON will be happening the end of April and we are trying to keep it similar to our Field Days. We will be needing volunteers for some of our stations so look for information on how to sign-up coming home soon!

THANK YOU again for all of your support for our JRFH event ~ it is absolutely mind blowing how much of a difference we can all make! Have a wonderful break and remember……..

DON’T JUST SIT ~ GET FIT!

Flu info from Nurse Karetha

Please email Nurse Karetha at [email protected] and let her know if your student has been diagnosed with the flu by a health care provider this year.

Remember – the best way to stay well is to wash your hands thoroughly and do not touch your face. Stay home if you’re not feeling well. Germs are not something we want to share at Mountain View! See the school website for more info on the flu and how to prevent it. Check out these important short videos!

Here is an article I was asked to write about my “PASSION” for the American Heart Association. I hope you can feel the reason we all support the JRFH event at Mtn. View and will join me in helping raise money for our cause to be Heart Healthy! Go online and take the pledge!

Hi Mtn. View Families!
Happy November and Happy FALL! We hope you are making big plans for the upcoming Thanksgiving season and we have a super fun thing for you guys to do as a family. The above link will take you to a “Planksgiving Thanksgiving” calendar filled with fun exercises for you to complete daily throughout the month. This year, Thanksgiving is on November 23 or 11/23. Therefore, all exercises will be 11 or 23 repetitions each! HOPEFULLY the link will allow you to access a video on how to do the exercises through YOUTUBE. There is even a place to take a moment to reflect on things you and your’s are “Thankful” for! We hope this will open up communication and reflection on all we have to be thankful for!
I know I AM THANKFUL for each of you!

Happy Thanksgiving
Coach Janas

Mad Dash & Fall Festival….

HATS OFF  to those committees that planned all of the activities for our Fall fundraiser. Mad Dash was a BLAST and I wanted to personally thank the committee for allowing me to participate with the students and be a part of all of that. It was truly a wonderful event and evening planned. The fall festival was well attended and super fun for everyone!

Your child has been very busy this month in Physical Education.  Our K-2 students have been working on balance and tossing/catching as well as other fitness components.  Our 3-5th graders have had a great time with our Frisbee unit and playing frisbee golf outdoors! We borrowed the disc catchers to set up an 18 hole golf course for them to throw to and the kids had a blast. We made teams and kept score throughout the unit.  Several students came back from fall break and mentioned they had seen similar catchers on their vacation. I’m glad they recognized it and came back to tell me about i!

We are starting a fun tag game I learned at the Ga. State Physical Education conference this past weekend in Athens. We will be starting soccer soon ~ look for some fun activities coming your way for that!

Did you hear we got a rock wall in the gym? It’s gorgeous and the students really enjoyed trying it out during our balance unit!

Have a great week/month and have fun with the little goblins coming around the end of this month!

FitnessGram….

Hi Parents & Students!

We are in the process of getting a baseline for our fitness testing for the year. Your child has participated in the “PUSH-UP PARTY” and is presenting having a “SIT-UP SIESTA” while in class.  If their class is not being tested, they are playing basketball, jump rope, agility ladders, hula hoops, 4-square and tether ball! HOW FUN IS THIS!?

Please take time every day to do some type of fitness with your child, whether it be a walk around the block, jog in the neighborhood, or anything that gets that heart rate up!  Enjoy this time free from “DEVICES”!

Thank you for giving me the best!

Coach Janas
