GUESS WHAT DAY IT IS???? It’s Grizzly Games Day! No quarantine or amount of rain can keep us from moving and having fun. I hope you and your families use the link below to enjoy your own Grizzly Games at home. My kids and I had so much fun making this for you. You may recognize a few others faces who wanted to join in on the fun. It was a labor of love! If you take pictures or videos, please use our hastag, #LCESfitfam, so that we can see your smiling faces. We miss you!
Looking for more ways to include movement into your daily routine at home? See our latest Phase II resources below! Included is a “PE Choice Board” and several activity resources that correspond. Why should you include physical activity into your game plan, you say? It not only helps to promote strong bodies and healthy growth/development, but it also improves concentration, self-esteem, relieves stress, and improves sleep. MOVE IT, MOVE IT!

This just in! The CDC has updated the guidelines for physical activity. The new recommendations include age groups as young as 3-5 year old, and continue all the way through advanced aged adults. See this article from Forbes magazine with the full details:

Welcome back to another awesome year in Physical Education! I am so excited to see our Grizzly movers and shakers working towards a healthy mind and body. Please remember to wear tennis shoes each time your child has PE for Encore. Students have PE on back to back days. If you would like to donate items, we could use the following:
- Beaded Necklaces (Treasured “bling” for fitness activities)
- New Plungers (Yes, NEW plungers only. Used for pulling scooters to develop upper body strength.)
- KidzBop Music
