Family Fitness and Wellness

Family Fitness Days

Our Wellness Committee organizes Family Fitness on Churchill Road Spirit Days. Join us from 8:00 a.m. to 8:20 a.m. to enjoy a little fun and exercise (or just connect with other parents) before school!

 

Family Fitness Days are held outside at the playground or the CRS gym, depending on the weather. We hope you and your family will join us for some fitness fun!

The Wellness Committee

Our Wellness Committee promotes a well-rounded wellness program for staff, students, and their families. In the 2014-2015 school year green plants were added to the school to remove toxins in the air; enhancing indoor spaces with plants has been shown to increase concentration and reduce fatigue, colds, headaches, and sickness rates.

 

Weekly, the CRS PTA Wellness Committee provides good information on healthy decisions in the Churchill Chatter, such as how outdoor play develops a stronger immune system, improves mood, boosts vitamin D levels, promotes problem-solving, and instills an appreciation for the earth.

Wellness Tips

Did you know there are some easy ways to boost your immune system as you prepare for flu season: sufficient sleep, eating a nutritious diet, drinking fluids, regular exercise, playing outdoors, and a twenty-second burst of cold water at the end of a shower--socializing can also make you less susceptible to developing a cold.

 

In addition to helping the immune system, socializing improves brain health! Friendships benefit our health by engaging us with opportunities to share new experiences, develop different roles, and to enjoy life. New friends can be discovered in the classroom, at the playground, through involvement with sports teams, musical pursuits, community groups, or by connecting with others with similar interests. In a similar vein, the CRS PTA shares the health benefits of gratitude. Thankfulness improves sleep, reduces anxiety, increases long-term satisfaction, and creates kinder behavior to others.
