 Fitness News

 

We have been studying our body Systems in Fitness beginning with the skeleton and labeling our bones. We have also studied the Circulatory System; we used Stethoscopes to listen to our heartbeat and that of our friend! This really excited the students! I think I see some future Doctors and Heart Surgeons in our Haggar Community!


We took a break from studying our Body Systems to practice for our jump rope tryouts and the contest. The students are all asking how they can get these ‘segmented’ ropes that we use!


I order them from BSN Sports. They are located in Farmers Branch/ Carrollton. I am posting the website and the information for you to review! www.BSNsports.com. In the search area, search for segmented skip rope – they come in all sizes. We use either the:

  • Red/white 7’ $3.49
  • Blue/White 8’ $3.49
  • Red/white/blue 9’ $4.49

Product link

These are the best jump ropes that I have ever used and the students seem to love them! Hope this helps!


Please read the article regarding our Wellness Fair! We hope to see you at the Jump Rope Contest before the Fair and continue on inside to the Fair beginning at 6:00!


There is a lot going on these last few months of school! Please make sure your student gets plenty of rest, eats healthy, and exercises! Remember your 2020 VISION!
