I am excited to announce that BOKS is back! BOKS (Build Our Kids’ Success) is a before-school fitness program with the mission to promote the profound impact of physical activity on a child’s mind, body, and community. The BOKS program is designed to jump start kids’ brains and prepare them for a day of learning.
Coordinated and run by parents, in conjunction with Nicole Fyvie (our PE teacher), BOKS will meet on Wednesday and Friday mornings from 7:30-8:15am in the Bates gym. BOKS begins on Wednesday October 29th and runs through to Friday December 12th.
The BOKS application is attached. If you are interested in having your child/ren participate, please print and complete the application and return it to the Bates’ office by Friday October 24th. Families will be notified of their child’s participation by Monday October 27th. Due to only a few volunteer trainers, only 35 students will be allowed to participate. If more than 35 applications are received, names will be drawn in a lottery to determine participants (If you are interested in volunteering as a BOKS trainer, please e-mail Nicole Fyvie at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call her at ext. 2138).
Additional BOKS sessions will be held in the winter and spring.
