iChallenge You to Smart & Healthy Habits!

Coach Jackson sharing tips for healthy living. 
We had a great turn out for our iChallenge You to Smart and Healthy Habits Event. We host this event every year to share resources and tips for keeping our kids' minds and bodies active throughout the summer. Elvira Deyamport presented Compass Learning and TrueFlix, two educational programs available for HPSD students. Parents and guardians were given tips on how to navigate both sites and encouraged to have their children log in weekly in order to give them a head start in the fall. Coach Lauren Smith then presented the website, Move to Learn, a Mississippi initiative to get our kids moving for 30 minutes a day. Finally, our guest speaker, Coach Elvin Jackson from Healthy Living Finess gave an inspirational talk on the importance of movement and fitness in our daily lives. We thank our  HPSD parents and families for their support and for allowing us to teach our kids during the summer!

It's the Electric Slide! Dancing is a great way to move and have fun!
