Keeping Fit at the Canyon!
- Sarah Nielsen, Canyon Vista Middle School
- Physical Activity Participation
Over the past few years, we have been implementing physical activity outside of P.E. classes, such as Activity Breaks in the Classroom and Enrichment Days on Early Release Days. It has been a great success for kids to be active in the classroom to be better performers and thinkers. We also started a Functional Fitness Program, where we do Workouts of the Day every Tuesday and Thursday. It has been a great program for students and teachers to learn a variety of functional fitness exercises that work the entire body and keep everyone in excellent shape! Also, the workouts change every day, so it doesn’t get old and boring for the students!
