|Less is More: Significant Decrease Seen in Childhood Obesity|
Silver Wing Elementary third-grade students were breaking a sweat. They were jumping rope, executing lunges, and performing “bicycle” abdominal crunches—all in an effort to increase their knowledge and demonstrate their performance of key physical fitness components. The students’ cardiovascular endurance, abdominal strength, and even their brains were put through a workout during the physical education session.
|Welcome, Military Families!|
April is “Month of the Military Child” and the
District invites students to participate in a T-shirt design contest. Families
were sent a School Messenger email with information, to encourage student
participation. All students are welcome to submit their designs. The contest is
among activities to celebrate military families and their children, for the
daily sacrifices they make, and the challenges they overcome. The District’s
Military Family Advocate helps provide support to military-connected students,
families, and schools. A Welcoming Practices partnership grant headed by the
University of Southern California, and that involves five school districts,
including CVESD, helped create more welcoming and effective transitions. The
position of Military Family Advocate is funded through the grant.
