We are excited to bring the We Can! program to South Lake Tahoe area students and families. All students from the four elementary schools will participate in We Can! which stands for Ways to Enhance Children’s Activity and Nutrition.
In the next four weeks, there will be weekly challenges that focus on fitness and nutrition goals. We encourage you to try these goals as a family! The PE Teachers will remind students of these goals and the Cafeteria will be serving fruits and vegetables that match the color of the week. Try adding the colorful fruits and vegetables to your child’s lunch or serving them at dinner.
