Today all students participated in Fitness Land. It's an outside activity that is loosely based on the board game Candy Land. Students roll a dice and move their game piece. If they land on red spot, they pick an exercise out of the red bucket. If they land on a blue spot, they pick an exercise out of the blue bucket, and so on. Ask your child about this game or ask them to explain how it works!

Along those same lines, the nature trail at Vanderbilt Town Park was recently converted into a fitness trail. There are spots along the trail where signs explain a fitness activity to perform. Might be a lot of fun for the whole family! Check it out!
