  • Dear Elementary School Parent,

    Welcome to Health! Your child participates in Healthy Minds every month, instead of Physical Education (PE) class. The elementary students rotate between PE/Healthy Minds on a three week basis. This means your child will go to PE class for three weeks, then come to Health class the following week. This rotation will continue throughout the year.

    In Health class, we will focus on what what we put into our bodies (nutrition) and what we do with our bodies (fitness)... and it matters We will discuss safety, wellness, and character traits as well.

    We will taste various healthy foods in our classroom. I will be in contact with the Elementary Nurse about students with allergies. If your child is allergic to any fruits or vegetables, please contact me. Please check out the RECIPES page for Taste Test items that we sample each week.

    Follow the K-2 Healthy Minds class on Twitter @ FSD79elemHM for fun activities and learning! If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at lnorthup@fsd79.org.

    Thank you for your time,

    Lori Northup
