Every day fit

Wednesday, October 05, 2011

Today was national walk to school day. I did this with students at my school. There is not enough physical activity in schools anymore! No wonder there is an obesity epidemic! At least there is this one day when we try to raise awareness and reverse the damage.

    I would love to see the kids do this more......I live too far to walk myself......well over 15 miles. I have to get my exercise other ways.

    To do this walk I had to give up my only planning period in the morning. Given how schools are treating teachers......taking away almost all of our planning time I am happy to do this once a year. After that it is time for parents to step up and take responsibility for their children's health.

    emoticon emoticon Can you start doing this on a regular basis. I know they are walking at least three days a walking in McKenzie's third grade class. Of course she is already a super active child...walking, biking, running with her family, trampoline jumping and dancing all keep her pretty busy.
