New Exercise Program?

When we enter a new year, many people make a resolution to lose weight. Are you one of them? Do you believe that your child is a bit on the heavy side? Do exercise programs make you cringe?
First of all, we all want to respect our bodies as the temple of God for the Holy Spirit dwells in it. The Apostle Paul wrote to the Corinthians, “Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst?” (1 Corinthians 3:16). Therefore, we want to have physical fitness so that we can lead long and healthy lives. We respect our bodies as God’s temples. So what kind of exercise is necessary to keep our bodies healthy?
Some people think that 30 minutes of exercise is necessary to maintain good health. Other’s advocate 60 minutes of exercise a day. But is that realistic? Do you have that much time to dedicate to exercise? Perhaps you will be more faithful to exercising daily if you chunk it. Start off exercising each morning by going for a 10-15 minute walk. Perhaps you can walk on a treadmill in your home and do simple exercises like sit-ups, deep knee bends, or push-ups in addition.  
The key is to get your heart rate up for 5-10 minutes. That will strengthen your heart muscle. If you exercise each day for 15 minutes, you will start gradually losing weight if you keep the calorie intake at the same level as before. However, if you decide to exercise 15 minutes in the morning and then 15 minutes after work to unwind, you will start to notice a change within two or three weeks. You will feel energized and more mentally alert.
For those who truly want to lose weight, consider cutting out snacks altogether and cutting down on carbohydrate intake. Stay away from sweets and seconds. Focus on eating more fresh fruits and vegetables. Also, drink a glass of water before each meal, and you will start losing weight in a gradual and healthy manner. For more information go to the USDA website, www.usda.gov for healthy diets. For more information on healthy exercise, go to https://health.gov/our-work/physical-activity. Have a healthy and happy New Year!

School Play

We are going to attempt to do the musical Willy Wonka Jr that we started practicing last year. We pray that by April 30 we can put on the performance at Friedens gym. You may tentatively put that date on your calendar. The alternative day would by May 7th. Tryouts for the musical are set for January 19. We will have try outs from 3:30-6:00 PM.  All students who tried out last year and had a part will be given the same part for this year. Anyone who wants to change to a different part will have to tryout again for the new part. 
 

Robotics
 

There will not be any robotics practice on Tuesday and Wednesday. We will have one Thursday, January 7, from 3:15-5:00 if we have in-person school. Otherwise, our next practice is scheduled for Tuesday, January 12 and Wednesday, January 13 from 2:30-5:00. To make up for lost time, we will have a Saturday practice on January 9 from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Your child only needs to be present part of the time to practice driving. This will work around basketball games. You can view the rest of the robotics schedule by clicking on the "Robotics" title.
Our first competition is at Shoreland on Sunday, January 17 from 12:30-5:00 PM. Plan on having your child at Shoreland by 12:40 at the latest. Thank you!
 

Remind App

If you haven't gotten the Remind app I would suggest that you do so. You will get weather related school closings.

Athletics

First, all afterschool activities will be canceled at Friedens for the entire week. This means no basketball, cheer practices, and no games on Thursday. This is due to a recommendation from the Kenosha Police Department and Kenosha Sheriff's department. Mr. Zank will try to reschedule the games at a later date. Final schedules for the games will be out by Wednesday. He is waiting on the Catholic schools to finalize our Saturday schedules. The LLAC schedules are set. 

On a better note, KLA wear will be in by Friday.  Mr. Zank will distribute it next Monday.

Winter Gear


With winter and cold weather present please remember to send hat, ear muffs, scarves, mittens, and gloves to school with your child/ren. When it starts to snow please remember that they will also need winter boots and snow pants. We try to get the children outside as much as we possibly can. If your child/ren do not come to school with the appropriate gear they will stay inside for recess. Thank you.
