Ms. Komow and Ms. Spear would like to invite you to Memorial Spaulding’s Wellness Peek Week. This is a time for families to see what their children are learning in Physical Education and how hard they are working on their wellness through fitness. Come join the fun by participating in a variety of fitness stations during your child’s P.E. time. We encourage families to bring workout gear to exercise with their children. If you are coming from work, no worries!
Throughout the Wellness Unit, students learn about the 5 Components of Fitness, which include; Cardiovascular Endurance, Muscular Strength, Body Composition, Flexibility and Muscular Endurance. This year, grades 3-5 have learned how to use IHT Heart Rate wristbands to measure their cardiovascular endurance and set goals. They have also been learning about other ways to keep their brain, body and heart healthy. Grades K-2 are using a variety of exercise equipment for the first time and learning about eating healthy foods, getting enough sleep and exercising to keep their bodies healthy on a daily basis. The goal is to create awareness around Wellness and developing healthy lifestyles.
We are so proud of the effort and engagement of all our students and we know you will be too!
