• During our school closure due to the COVID-19, I want to use this page to give some ideas of stretching and exercising you can do at home.  Remember, we do not need to be in a gym to get a workout and stay active.  Exercise is a great way to fight off illness and take our minds off of our current situation.  I hope each of you and your families stay healthy throughout this ordeal.
