Focus on PD: Physical Fitness

Thanks to a generous grant, we were able to invite David Geslak from Exercise Connection to work with our team on strategies to incorporate Physical Fitness more deliberately into our programming. The grant covered the cost of the two-session training, curriculum and fitness equipment including medicine balls, foam rollers and more. Soon, Nora our awesome Occupational Therapist will be coordinating weekly fitness sessions with each classroom to help get things rolling.
