At yesterday’s Child Service Meeting, our Rec Center staff gave a presentation on new programs they are developing. Besides coordinating the team sports against other schools, they have a vision about helping staff and students develop healthier lifestyles.
Mark has become certified in Circular Strength Training, which involves a series of body movements that can be done gently and slowly, but over time provide a great workout. Instead of just telling us about it, he had us get out of our chairs and walk through the activity with him. I admit it did help me stay more alert during the meeting than I normally would have after just eating lunch.
Our High School Program director, Shana, gave us an update on her meetings with the public school administrators. They have been brainstorming on ways to improve the transition for our eighth grade graduates at St. Joseph’s Indian School when they enter Chamberlain High School.
One thought on “Developing healthier lifestyles”
Dear Fr. Steve and children: The exercise program just initiated sounds like something we could all benefit from! We have purchased a stationary bike from a garage sale, for our youngest son, who is autistic, and now pre-diabetic. We are hoping this will help reduce his weight, and get him moving more. All movement is beneficial no matter what our age or condition. God Bless you, the children and the staff. ~~love in Christ~~Arleen Graham
