LET’S MOVE, JONESTOWN!
First lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” curriculum was our focus this summer. Pre-schoolers came in the morning for a healthy breakfast, then played active games, learned about healthy fruits and vegetables, had lunch, and played “My Plate” games. Six to ten year olds came in the afternoon for PE at the Jonestown Elementary School gym, lunch, learning about “My Plate”, swimming every week at the Tunica Aquatic Center, and reading food books. Some wanted to know why they couldn’t come on weekends!
Our Montessori and toddler programs are beginning this month. The first day of school is always exciting here.
Thank you for all you do to support our education and wellness programs.
Gratefully, in Christ,
Sister Teresa Shields and staff of the Jonestown Family Center
