March is Keheley’s Walking Wellness Month. Students, family, faculty, and the community will join together and focus on physical fitness. We want to help everyone create and maintain a healthy, active lifestyle. Parents, we would like for you to join in and encourage your child to exercise. Let’s make this a FUN month full of meaningful experiences. Play games outside, and discuss the events of the day as you all walk. Let’s set a goal to walk 10,000 steps a day!
Plan to walk with your child three or more times a week. We are not tracking family mileage for the month as we have done in past years, but have attached a Fitness calendar for the month as a resource for your family.
DATES TO REMEMBER
· March 7th-Walk to School Day
· March 23-28 students will walk during their Physical Education classes and families are welcome to join in the fun.
· March 29th is the Straw Walk. The rain date is March 30, which is P.E. Fun Day. Parents, siblings, grandparents, relatives, friends, etc. are welcome and encouraged to come during the scheduled time and spend 30 minutes earning straws (mileage) for their child’s class. The scheduled time is the same as their P.E. time. The class in each grade level that accumulates the most miles for that day wins the prestigious Golden Shoe Trophy. Let the marching begin!
