Pawing our way to fitness
Bristow Run Families: Stay active at home by completing this workout. Return the paw and have it displayed at school!
Complete at least one activity from each of the four sections. Color in the corresponding toe on the panther paw to track your fitness. Remember to follow the repetition guideline that you learned in PE. K & 1st grade should follow the lowest number. 2nd & 3rd grade should follow the middle number. 4th & 5th grade should follow the highest number. Once you have completed each paw, fill it out completely and turn it in to your teacher!
Parent Directions: Please save this paper so that your student will know which exercises to complete. After this, only blank paws will be sent home to complete.

Download the forms here.
