2024 MS REACH WEEK: Food & Fitness

2024+MS+REACH+WEEK%3A+Food+%26+Fitness

JUPITER CHRISTIAN SCHOOL –  At Jupiter Christian School, our middle schoolers were offered many R.E.A.C.H. Week options, such as the Orlando Mission Trip , Washington DC, Outdoor Sports and Adventure, Food and Fitness, the Magic of Storytelling, and many more. I was able to do Food and Fitness.

Each day we had some type of exercise planned. On Monday, our R.E.A.C.H. Week went to Hard Exercise Works. The company also goes by HEW Fitness. We had two instructors that helped us. We would have rounds of 5-minute exercises such as 100m run, wall walks, planks, Russian twists, and squats with weights. If we finished the exercise and there was extra time left, we would finish off with a plank.

Day two (Tuesday) was Riverbend Park. We did a scavenger hunt as well as walking the trail. There was many things we had to find and take a photo of, including a leaf as big as the palm of your hand, a raccoon, an alligator, and many more. We were put in pairs, who became our partners for the rest of the week. We then walked on the trail for about a mile and a half.

Day 3 (Wednesday) we went to the beach. On Wednesday we left around 10 am to head to the beach at Ocean Cay Park. We did a workout similar to the HEW Fitness workout by having rounds in a group of 3 or 4. After we worked out, we were rewarded with being able to go into the water for at least 20-25 minutes. After it was time to come out, we walked from the beach to the park to go sit and have lunch. While we waited for Mrs. Beach to come back with food, we were on the playground and playing beach volleyball. When she came back, we ate and went back on the playground. As our food started to settle we were able to go back into the water for another 20 minutes. Then we came back to school, and we had a spiritual reflection.

Day 4 (Thursday/the last day of R.E.A.C.H. Week) we went to the ATC on campus. We also did a station with rounds. We had many rounds like maybe 8-12 and we did it two times. After we completed our rounds, we headed back to the classroom. Mrs. Beach went to get our lunch and as we waited we had free time. After we ate, we had self care time learning how to stretch properly and extend our bodies.

In conclusion, Food and Fitness was a fun R.E.A.C.H. Week course, and I would recommend it for the middle schoolers. I think I speak for everyone when I say that the beach day was the best.

MS Yearbook Staff Class of 2028 Madison King is one of the student reporters in the year 2023-2024 MS Yearbook class. Madison is either known as Madi or Mads which are nicknames given to her by her friends. She says she prefers Madi. She graduates in the year 2028 from high school and 2024 from middle school. Madi has grown up in the Bahamas for most of her life but moved in the year 2019 to Florida. Sports she has participated in are softball and soccer. Madi says after she graduates from high school she wants to go to college and study nursing to become a travel nurse. Her favorite Bible verses that helps her get through the day are 1 Timothy 4:12 and Jeremiah 29:11. 1 Timothy 4:12 says, "Let no one despise you for your youth, but set example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity." Now Jeremiah 29:11 states, "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you future and a hope." An interesting fact about Madi is that she's the youngest in her grade and probably might always be.
