"This year sparks the introduction of a new individual and team sport in Pennsylvania. Cross Country Mountain Bike racing is taking over the country and Pennsylvania is included in the list of states that is adopting this great sport. The mission of the league is to get more kids on bikes and away from the video game controller, while teaching them the values of a life-long activity. To get involved please visit the website at www.pamtb.org and look for monthly meetings at the Wellness Center."
I would like to acknowledge all the hard work that the Beaver County Education Trust and Central Valley Education Foundation does for Central Valley. These organizations are comprised of a dedicated group of individuals that understand how important a quality based curriculum can be for the framework of success. The BCET and CVEF provides mini grants and opportunities for the students to become successful in the classroom. This year, the mini grants provided funds for a program entitled “TRX: Total Body Resistance Program.” The Physical Education department was able to purchase seven TRX’s with Xmounts. The students will be learning how to set up the TRX and how to use the principles of progression to complete body weight resistance exercises. Students will be able to improve their health and understand the importance of being fit for life. Our students have been given a great opportunity and I feel that they will enjoy this experience.
