It’s that time of year again! On September 30th, all students will take place in the annual Sequoia Fun Run. We are raising money for the library and new books this year. Sign up on our DoJiggy website and create a page for your student to share via social media and email. Then sit back and watch the donations securely come in! It will be a fun-filled day of exercise and team work. We have great prizes for the top classroom fundraisers.
As parents and educators, we are interested in teaching children about how physical activity and a healthy lifestyle can contribute to overall self-esteem, productivity, and enjoyment of life. In our society there is a tendency for children to make unhealthy choices… eating fast-food, playing video games, and not getting enough exercise. This is a constant topic in the news and a concern with educational institutions and parents. For that reason, we encourage parents to continue to look for opportunities that send the message of the importance of building an overall healthy lifestyle. Cookie dough, chocolate bar and candy fundraisers just don’t do that!
