    See below for some of the activities I led last year at my previous school, Hammett Bowen Elementary.  I am looking forward to bringing some new programs to NHJ.   


    Fitness and Nutrition in Schools is an innovative chronic disease prevention program that incorporates increased physical fitness opportunities, improved nutrition and healthy lifestyle education for children in our school system. We are so lucky to be part of the program!  We have enjoyed watching our garden grow and harvesting our crops.

    Morning Mile
    Students have the opportunity to run or walk laps before school. Morning Mile opens at 7:20 and will close in enough time for students to check out and go to class on time.  They must eat breakfast before participating and must remain respectful and responsible to continue participating.  Students will earn a necklace and tokens by completing laps.  Students will not be given replacement necklaces or tokens.  Morning Mile will be closed if it is raining or if it is 41 degrees or lower.  How many laps can you run this year?
