January Dare to Excel Newsletter 

When weekends, school breaks, and summer are added together, kids spend many hours outside of school walls.  How this time is spent affects their growth and development, as well as their success at school.  Iowa State University Extension and Outreach offers a monthly newsletter during the school year, September through May, to help parents help their children become better learners. 

Our January newsletter is focused on ways to build physical activity into family routines.  Children need at least one hour of physical activity each day, including aerobic activities such as running or brisk walking, muscle building activities such as gymnastics or push-ups and bone strengthening activities such as jumping rope.  Kids who are physically active have stronger muscles and bones and a leaner body and usually have lower blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels.  They’re less likely to become overweight and develop type 2 diabetes.  They also sleep better, handle stress better, and perform better in school.

The elementary art/makerspace is in need of some supplies for future projects at various grade levels.  There will be more items needed throughout the year. Your help in providing any of the listed materials would be greatly appreciated.  If you feel you have other items which may benefit our program, please contact me at  blangner@svjags.org   or  call the school @ 467-5700. Leave a message and contact information. Together we can make a difference! Thanks so much for your support -- Ms. Barb Langner, K-4 art & math intervention
