Plastic Beads In Your Toothpaste

Always educate yourself students. Read the article below. Small changes in your health and nutrition plan add up to huge health benefits over time.

“They’ll trap bacteria in the gums which leads to gingivitis, and over time that infection moves from the gum into the bone that holds your teeth, and that becomes periodontal disease,” dentist Justin Phillip said, according to Phoenix ABC affiliate KNXV. “Periodontal disease is scary.”

Surf Time

What’s up guys. As you can see in the picture below I just got back from surfing. The waves were small but fun and the water was warm and glassy with the sun shining brightly. There is nothing better then riding a wave believe me. As you can see I have 2 surfboards in my hand. The bigger board(8ft) is called a “Wavestorm” and the smaller surfboard(5’8) is called a “CBC Sushi Fish surfboard.” These 2 boards are great to learn on as they are very cheap to buy from Costco. I encourage you all to give surfing a try or just enjoy boogie boarding or body surfing. Let me know if you hit the waves. See you Monday.

Pass Patterns/Technology

Yo, what’s the word people. Good job today practicing your pass patterns. I hope some of you enjoyed using the flip video today to see yourselves in action and correct any bad technique you may have. We will also be using a GoPro, Ipad, and camera to help enhance our learning in PE. Tomorrow is cardio Wednesday so get some rest. We will be jogging the blacktop and then a quick lecture on proper sleep. See you all soon.
