Health and Wellness Day is this Friday, May 26. The Phys Ed department and the Nurse’s Office put together a fun day of activities for your kids to participate in!
Our Community Walk takes place after the 9:30 AM Opening Ceremony. Parents, family members and other community members are welcome to join in! Please gather outside the front of the school so as not to interrupt the office staff as well as the rest of the building. You can join in with your student as they come out of the building. Parents – we’d love to see you in your NSES Spirit Wear, or at least in the school colors of purple and white. The looks on your child’s face when they see you (or a grandparent, or a friend) outside waiting for them is priceless, and they are just thrilled when you can do a school activity with them. The walk is short enough for short legs, so wear your sneakers and join in!
Some of the activities include two of our local grocery stores, Honest Weight Food Co-op, and Hannaford, presenting about nutrition. Amy Ellis, an NSES mom, will be our Honest Weight presenter! There will yoga for the Pre-K and Zumba for all the grades.
Coach McClement and Ms. Baker will be running all sorts of activities, from soccer to basketball, football to baseball and more! Our own Albany High Falcon Coaches and Student Athletes, will be coming over to help out! It’s a great opportunity for our kids to see the Student Athletes that they could become! Heart rates will be pumping and we’ll learn how exercise can be fun!
Don’t forget to wear your appropriate clothing on Friday! It’s supposed to be a rainy day with a high of 65, so make sure that you wear layers, and it wouldn’t hurt to have sunscreen for the dry times. The teachers will be trying to get the kids outside when the rain stops. Of course we have water fountains, but if you wish to send your child with a (labeled) water bottle, it would be greatly appreciated, by both them and us!
We NEED volunteers! As you probably know from your own experiences, the kids are VERY excited during these activities, and extra adult supervision helps to keep our activities fun and safe. The link at the top of the page lists the slots available as well as the times that you would be needed. The volunteer slots are for the younger grades for nutrition and it is very difficult to run these events without extra adults. Please make an effort to help if you can.
Many thanks to our Health & Wellness Committee for all the hard work they put into this day!
