Dear Educator,

Recognizing the clear and important connection between personal health and job performance, Superintendent Larry Shumway is challenging all members of the educational community to improve their fitness levels during the 2011-2012 school year.  The State Office of Education will provide free, on-line resources to assist educators in their efforts to increase physical activity and  improve nutritional habits.  These resources will be listed on the health and physical education website<http://www.schools.utah.gov/curr/healthpe/>.  The USOE will also provide a quarterly healthy lifestyles newsletter to those educators who wish to subscribe.  To subscribe go to: https://lists.uen.org/mailman/listinfo/utahhealth-pe/

Attached is an overview of the program with key end-of-challenge opportunities.  One of those is the RAGNAR Mountain Relay event in June 2012.   The USOE has partnered with Imagine Learning to provide funding for 7 teams just for educators.  To register for a team, educators will go to the following site on OCTOBER 15, 2011, beginning at 8:00 a.m.  The first 70 registrants will be placed on teams; the next 30 will be waitlisted.  There will be a kickoff activity in Provo on November 5, 2011, 9:00-11:00 a.m.
