EVERYBODY MOVE YOUR BODY

WHAT? All EES students are invited to come move their bodies before school starts!

WHEN? Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 7:45- 8:05 during the month of May (we had to take 2 days off because of the Champlain College graduation tent)

WHY? Research has shown that exercise can increase academic achievement, improve behavior and increase self-confidence…and it will be fun!

WAIT…WHAT? All EES students are encouraged to join in a walk/run around the field in the morning before school starts. There is a system to track and record the number of laps made each day. In addition we are tracking how many miles as a school we have completed. Students who participate are recognized each week during our all school assembly. Please encourage your child to participate!
