Mini Football & Nutrition Camp At Copperfield

Physical health and exercise is a part of making sure the whole student is being educated and supported. So innovative programs like the Fuel To Play 60 Mini Football and Nutrition Camp are great ways to get kids excited to move their bodies, get their heart rate going and get that blood flowing to stimulate the mind.  The camp was put together by the Dallas Cowboys and hosted at Copperfield Elementary School and was open to any child at that campus in 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade. 

 

Students participated in different agility and hand-eye coordination drills that were fun and challenging. The physical part was combined with some great advice on nutrition and how to fuel up your body to prepare to perform your best...whatever you plan to do.  Judging by the success of the program, many other campuses may be getting involved soon as well.  

   

     

Fun At Paschall Library

It's always a great time to have some reading fun at your school library.  Recently at Paschall Elementary School's library, they hosted what was called Mystery Readers Day.  Parents were asked to keep this event secret, but to volunteer to read to their child?s class during their library time. Parents read behind a screen and their children were surprised to hear their parent, sister, aunt or grandmother reading their favorite book. The event was part of the recent National Library Week that celebrates the contributions of our nation's libraries and those who make them such great places to read and learn.  Thank you, Ms. Peterson, for sharing.
