Summertime is the time when more families get together to enjoy some well-earned vacation time. Some families travel outside the state to get away from the heat, while others may choose to stay in Arizona and take in the natural beauty of the desert. Some families are not in a position to do either, and simply try to enjoy their local parks and facilities. Take this time to educate your students on both the benefits and dangers of outdoor activities in Arizona! Just an hour a day of active exercise is no problem when students are enjoying an early-morning walk, or taking time to hike the Grand Canyon with their family.

Talk to your students about planning something special for parents on July 26th—National Parents Day! This day was founded to promote responsible parenting in our society and to uplift ideal parental role models, especially for our nation's children. Encourage your students and parents to plan some good, healthy, and active family time this month to strengthen those bonds and parental role models! Find out more about National Parents day at
