We had a fun Health and Wellness week this past week at Coal Creek Canyon K-8! The Molar Express came to the Kindergarteners, First and Second graders on Monday. They learned a lot about teeth and oral health! Thanks to Maria McVey for setting this up and getting toothbrushes donated for the Health Fair.

On Wednesday Mrs. Cariann Brown came and taught yoga outdoors on the turf field during lunch, thanks Cariann! We look forward to more after school yoga later in the year!

Mileage Club started on Wednesdays and Fridays with a fun Broncos Theme, Go Broncos!!! We are still looking for parent/guardian volunteers to help with Mileage club on Fridays from 12:10-1:00 and to join the Health and Wellness committee to help make CCCK-8 the healthiest school in Colorado! Contact me at aprilduncan1@yahoo.com. Thank you to Christine Neff for organizing Mileage club and volunteering on Wednesdays!

Friday we had a Health Fair hosted by the 7th and 8th grade students and teachers! Thanks guys, you did a great job! At lunch the students helped decorate the Health and Wellness Bulletin board with pictures representing the Kaiser 5, 2, 1, 0!
 5 serving of fruit and vegetable a day
 2 hours or less of non-homework related screen time
 1 hour or more of exercise/activity
 0 sugary drinks

Thanks again to everyone who helped!

Sincerely,

April Duncan Fong, Health and Wellness Chair
