I miss you!

Posted by Michelle Bowen on 3/20/2020

Dear BES students and families,

I can't believe how much I miss you! Has it really only been a week? I hope you are all staying healthy and at home as much as possible. 

I have made a section of my PE website all about fitness at home. Staying active is a VERY important part of staying healthy, but I know that's a challenge when you're practicing social distancing. Remember, social distancing doesn't mean you can't leave your house - getting fresh air is also an essential part of both physical and mental health! Please spend some time looking through what I've added so far. I will continue to add resources, tweet challenges, etc. for the duration of this school closure.

Also, please notice, there is an assignment posted! While we are home, please complete the activity log I have created. All students who do this and return it to me when we get back to school will receive a small reward. Plus, for every 60 minutes (1 hour) of physical activity logged, your name will be entered into a drawing for a prize!

Finally, here are some dos and don'ts for being physically active while practicing social distancing:

  • DO exercise every day
  • DO find ways to include movement in other activities
  • DO go outside
  • DO play in your yard
  • DO go for a walk or bike ride (don't forget your helmet!)
  • DON'T have play dates 
  • DON'T go to playgrounds or parks
  • DON'T get too close to others on trails

Please know I am thinking of you and missing you. I can't wait to see you all when this is over! In the meantime, feel free to contact me through my discussion board on my teaching page, my email, or on twitter (all with your parent/guardian's approval of course).

Sending positive vibes to the BESt students in the world (see what I did there?)!
