    *Exercise boosts brain function.     
              *Exercise gives students an advantage to learn.            
    *Exercise is encoded in our genes.
         *Movement facilitates cognition.     
                *What makes us move is also what makes us think.           
    *Movement anchors learning.
     
     
    My Classroom Mission :
    As students at Lake Norman Elementary, we will come to Physical Education class to exercise, move, and challenge our minds and bodies. These tools will help us become physically fit and guide each of us in reaching our goal of getting in our Healthy Fitness Zone. We can accomplish this by having a positive attitude and coming prepared for class.
