F is for Fitness in February…
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.
