Estimados Padres de Escuela de Lenguaje Dual y Escuela Elemental Townline:
Empesando el 21 de abril, nuestras clases de Educación Física (grados 2-5) van a hacer un programa de patinar en la escuela. Patinar es un “deporte de toda la vida” que ayuda con balance, coordinación, agilidad, y otras destrezas físicas. Es un tipo excelente de ejercicio y puede ser aeróbico o no aeróbico.
Dear Townline Elementary and School of Dual Language Parents,
Beginning on April 21th our Physical Education Classes (grades 2-5) will be involved in an in-house
roller skating program. Skating is a “life time sport” that enhances balance, coordination, agility and other motor skills. This wonderful form of exercise can either be aerobic and/or anaerobic.
