Let's Get Moving!
AmeriCorps worker, Melanie Stewart of the Food and Fitness Initiative of Northeast Iowa, is visiting all of the classrooms again during the month of February. Ms. Stewart is teaching the students responsible behavior about their own wellness. During the month of January, she concentrated on teaching nutrition lessons. In February, she is also getting kids up out of their desks to be active. Here she is pictured working wiht a group of New Hampton first graders, showing them some simple moves to exercise their bodies right in their classrooms.
Teaching them to be responsible about taking care of their bodies is another way to focus on the pillar of responsibility during the month of February.
