Fit for Life


Dear students, parents and staff of Eastwood,

Eastwood Elementary has implemented a "Fit for Life" program. The "Fit for Life" program is an extension of the physical education program. It is a program that will enable your child to earn points by tracking these 5 key health behaviors (each health behavior is worth 2 pts):

  • 1 hour of physical activity
  • Eat 5+ fruits and vegetables per day
  • Less than 1 hr. of TV time, playing video games or playing on the computer
  • No sugary drinks
  • Eat breakfast & try school snack

Point sheets will then be turned in on the 1st of each month (with a 2 day-grace period) to the PE teachers. The master point chart will be placed in the hall by the gym.

Please use the calendar on the other side. Check each health behavior completed each day. Please total the points (300-310 max points) at the end of the month, have it signed by a parent/guardian and turn in the calendar to a PE teacher on the first day of the following month.

The maximum points per day is 10

Criteria for ALL GRADES: (Information on point qualifications and prizes will be announced at the start of the school year.)

The program will start September 4th, 2012 and ends on April 30th, 2013. Calendars need to be turned in 6 out of 8 months to attend the year-end party.

Bonus Point Opportunities:
You can earn bonus points by doing community service.
30 minutes = 10 pts. (max 30 pts. per month). Please look on the other side for ideas.

This program is open to any parent, sibling, or staff member at Eastwood Elementary School.
