Dublin City Schools is in its
second year of an employee wellness program that many staff members at IRE are
participating. We are inviting the
students of IRE to join us in our focus on wellness. Each Wednesday for the next 8 weeks, students can wear
workout gear (sweatpants, tennis shoes, etc) to school. We will be taking some time throughout
the day to “Move It” with the kids.
Also, we will be sending home optional Workout Wednesday Homework that
can be completed throughout the week. If your family chooses to participate, your child can fill
out the bottom portion of the homework and return it to school. The completed portions will be
collected and we will randomly pick winners each week to win wellness
prizes. We hope you and your
family will join us as we launch Workout to Wellness 2011.
