Hello R. J. Grey students and families!  
It's SPRING-YAY and we are into our fifth and final  rotation with Health/PE classes. The rotations for Health always fly by given we only have ~17 classes per term.  This current rotation will come to a close at the end of the school-year.   
Seventh Graders are focusing on the concepts of Wellness, Communication and Nutrition, including some cooking.  Students will be researching food groups and developing a presentation for their class. The presentations will focus on their food group will include examples of foods found in the food group; nutrients we find in these foods; the health benefits of the food groups; amount an average 13 year old should eat daily; examples of serving sizes; interesting facts about the food group; and finally they found healthy recipes that used the food group.  When we cook we will be making a Ginger Vegetable Stir-Fry. You can find a copy of the recipe under 7th Grade Recipes.

Eighth Graders have been researching new stretches and strength exercises to support their individual 2-week fitness programs. We are studying nutrients as well as foods to eat that will support our exercise routines. Students will be researching and trying out a Health App or Website.  Students will critique the app or website and write this up using a S'more or Padlet which will be shared with their classmates.
