Health and Nutrition

Each Wednesday, after we finish our “Cardio Wednesday” activities, you will learn about many topics from the world of health and nutrition. In my opinion proper nutrition is more important then exercise. You are what you eat. You will learn about proper nutrition, the power of sleep, 6 types of stress, digestive health, mental/emotional health, and much more. Character Education will also be a part of our health and nutrition curriculum.
