We are Middle Road Strong! This school year may look a little different but we will continue to work together for the Health of it! Be sure to scroll down this webpage for Fitness and Nutritional information posted just for you from Mrs. Hagee and Mrs. Holt! Feel free to contact us as we work together to stay fit and practice good nutritional habits.
Throughout the course of the year, students will develop positive social skills while they perform various motor skills and identify basic anatomical body parts utilized in the activities and games. Students will describe how to incorporate fitness in their daily activities and explain the importance of providing the body with energy through good nutrition.
Overall wellness is important to all and at all stages in ones’ life thus the importance of establishing active lifestyles and healthy behaviors, within the elementary grade levels, is where healthy habits begin. Teaching students to enjoy various movements, as they participate in a variety of activities tailored to developing important motor skills, is the foundation crucial to a healthy lifestyle.
