Good Morning RPI Families,
We received a great email yesterday from one of our amazing community partners. I am going to send you the most relevent as it pertains to families. There are some great resources to encourage us all, but especially kids, to be active during this crazy time.
Here are some bullets:
- Exercise is a great way to relieve anxiety, stress and boredom.
- Here is a copy/paste from this email related to yoga. I have heard great things about this program: "Thank you for helping us spread the word that all of our apps - Down Dog, Yoga for Beginners, HIIT, Barre, and 7 Minute - will be free to use until April 1st. In response to the many school closures taking place, we are extending the free period to July 1st for all students and teachers (K-12 and college) so that they can have access to wellness at home through the end of the semester. To access the free membership, please sign up with your .edu email address. If your school doesn't use .edu emails, please reply to this email or write to us at email@example.com so we can extend the free membership to your school's email domain. More info can be found at www.downdogapp.com Please help us share this with the students and teachers in your lives. With love, The Down Dog Team "
- Chances are, you have heard of GoNoodle. A little younger demographic, but still has some great ideas. https://family.gonoodle.com/activities/turn
- This is from a PE teacher and it looks pretty fun. https://youtu.be/7sw9aGK6csc
Staying healthy, washing your hands, drinking lots of water, not touching your face and adhering to the "shelter in place" order are some of the ways we are going to beat this thing. Please help us all and do this for yourself and others!
Have a great day everyone! Go Rockets!
