F is for Fitness in February"�

02/15/2013
and a chance to win a FREE Playground for your School! It"�s the dead of winter. Days are short in most parts of the country and the slog through school projects, and busy weeknights is beginning to feel a little relentless. BUT, the bright spot in this wintery month, especially for elementary aged kids, is of course President"�s Day. Not expecting that?? Well, let"�s remember that the third Monday in February is a welcome long weekend during the holiday dry spell that is the late winter calendar. During a month often known mostly for chocolate hearts and fresh cut flowers, here"�s a reminder that more than half a century ago, it was the President who established physical fitness as an important part of childhood education. The RRCA is a proud partner and member of the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation (HWCF). Want to be Role Model in Chief in your neck of the woods? There"�s plenty of time to remind everyone in your community your school can win a new playground! Between now and March 15th the more entries your school receives, the better chance your school has to win The Healthy Playground Makeover Sweepstakes.
