    The Fitness Education curriculum for elementary students at Elisa Nelson Elementary are aligned with local and State Standards! Physical activity must be done regularly to achieve health benefits. We want to build your skills, knowledge and confidence.  Therefore, your scholar’s participation is very important.  Encouraging our youth to be physically active is more important than ever before.  Increasing a child’s physical activity is not only important for improving their health, but recent studies also indicate that physical fitness levels are associated with academic performance. “An active body is an active mind”.
