Armstrong PTA Health & Wellness Committee
Armstrong students participated in The Wellness Committee's first "My Recipe Rocks" contest by submitting their favorite whole foods recipes. The contest promoted healthy eating by showing our students how easy it can be to create healthy recipes. Click on the link here to see the Healthy Recipes that were submitted by Armstrong students.
The PTA Health and Wellness committee is a group of Armstrong parent volunteers whose goal is to educate Armstrong kids about the importance of exercise/active play, eating a balanced diet of real foods, sleep and preventive health habits.
Spring 2013 After School Programs
Click here for the Spring After School Programs schedule.
Armstrong participates in the GRACE Art (the Greater Reston Arts Center) program to supplement and support our children's art experience in school. The program is unique because it is driven by volunteers and docents who bring portfolio information about a selected artist, and an associated art project, to the classroom.
The GRACE Art schedule for the 2012-13 school year is as follows: October: Van Gogh; December: Mary Cassatt; February: Andy Warhol; March: Leonardo DaVinci; and in April the topic of Seascapes.
We welcome volunteers at any time! If you would like to volunteer to participate in GRACE Art please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. You are welcome to volunteer as your schedule permits, it only requires about an hour of classroom time per project.
