  • Here is an Adobe File of the Healthy Futures Calendar!  You can use the computer to fill the boxes in with what activities you are doing to get healthy!  (Remember, 60 min or more of heart pumping exercise is what you are writing down!)  At the end of the month, take a picture of your COMPLETE (at least 15 days!) calendar and send it to me at brandy.bishop@matsuk12.us so I can get names entered in the database.

     

    Healthy Futures Log-April

     

    Healthy Futures Calendar-March  (can print this out at home and send a picture to me, or use the above calendar and make sure to change the month to March! If you cant print it out, find a sheet of paper and make one!  Or send me an email with some things you have been doing at home to be active.)

     

    Dear Parents,

    Welcome to the new school year! I am looking forward to working with you and your child, and pleased to announce our school will be participating in the Healthy Futures Challenge again this year.  The contest will run for three months, September, October and November.  At the end of the month, the calendar gets turned in to me so I can get their names entered for a prize.

     

    What is Healthy Futures? Founded by concerned parents, Healthy Futures is a statewide, grassroots movement to help youth build positive, lifelong physical fitness habits through two core programs: the Healthy Futures Activity Log Challenge and the promotion of youth attendance at local recreational events.

     

    Why Healthy Futures?  Kids are not as active as they should be.  They need daily vigorous physical activity to build strength, endurance, healthy muscles and bones or they may face tough problems like obesity, diabetes, and lower self-esteem. At Pioneer Peak, we are committed to helping students develop the skills, knowledge and desire they need in order to be physically active now and for the rest of their lives.

     

    How does your child participate in Healthy Futures? With your assistance, your child records physical activity on the Healthy Futures Activity Log for a calendar month. The goal is a minimum of 60 minutes of physical activity with increased heart rate AT LEAST 15 times each month (recess and PE count towards this goal!). This helps children get closer to the national recommendation of 60 minutes of physical activity every day for the best health.

     

    Incentives. In addition to being happier and healthier, students are rewarded for participating in Healthy Futures.  In exchange for turning in a completed log on time at the end of that month, students will receive a prize! 

     

    Please help your kids get out and active every day!  If you have any questions, please call.
