X Movement is back at Gledhill this week with “X Fusion”

The school administration is pleased to have X Movement back at Gledhill this week. Over the past two years, students have participated in their Aussie X and X Dance programs. This week it’s X Fusion!

Each class at Gledhill, JK through Grade 5, will have three sessions of X Fusion this week.

“X Fusion explores self-regulation through a mix of high-intensity fitness and mindful movement. Students are guided to identify their feelings and emotions, choose their desired state, and use physical action to achieve it. By the end, they’ll be equipped with the steps to self-regulate: Feel, Choose, Fuse.”

Thank you to parents who have already returned their Skate Borrowing forms and Skate Day permission forms.

If your child still needs to borrow skates and/or helmet on Skate Day – no problem- we will still have extra equipment for borrowing at the arena on the day of.

Each class will need 3-4 parents to walk with the children and teacher to Ted Reeve and help with skate tying. Please indicate your desire to volunteer directly to your child’s teacher.
