healthy living walk 2018Healthy Living Walk Letter 2018

Every year millions of children, teachers, and community leaders around the world celebrate International Walking and Bicycling to School Day. The program aims to educate and empower our students to live healthy lives by increasing opportunities for daily physical activity. The location of our school makes it difficult to allow every child in the Gray’s Creek district to participate in these activities for safety reasons. As a replacement for these activities Gray’s Creek Middle School is holding a healthy living walk.

Thursday, March 29, 2018 is going to be Gray’s Creek Middle Schools “Healthy Living Walk” event. We would like our students from all grades to join our administration and faculty for a two-mile walk through the housing community across from the school. We would like our family and other community members to join us for the walk.

Most people know that eating fruits and vegetables is important for good health, but most of us still aren’t getting enough. This September, let’s participate in Fruits & Veggies – More Matters Month. Eating a healthy diet with plenty of vegetables and fruits can help you lower your risk for heart disease and some types of cancer, maintain or reach a healthy weight, and keep your body strong and active. Here are some ideas to help you and your family fit more fruits and vegetables into your day. Try keeping a bowl of fruit handy where the whole family can see it, cut up fruits and veggies ahead of time so they’re ready for quick, healthy snacks, and challenge your family to try a new veggie or fruit every week. Remember, eating more fruits and veggies can be fun and worth it!
