Obese Children

Sizing Up Student Bodies -- interesting article in the Union-Trib last week on obesity in our school age children, including some alarming statistics: "By sixth grade, one out of  four boys and girls was [is!] obese...."
So if there are 24 students in your child's class, quite possibly 6 of those children are severely overweight and at risk for potentially dangerous health issues.

Much respect and thanks to our Language Academy parents that get out early every morning to take care of the Running Club and promote fitness and a healthy lifestyle!

Here is the info on the Running Club from the Language Academy website.

Great place to take the kids for a long walk, lots of plants, cool cars, and a llama!
