September 17, 2012

Just a reminder that if individuals following program 1 and 2 can take a break on Wednesday and continue with Day 3 on Thursday that would be optimal.
**Also a reminder that this week there will be no music unless you have headphones during the school day.  There is music that comes out of my office during the day, but please be courteous and adhere to the rules.

We are headed into our 3rd week of school and everyone is finally settling into classes and the new schedule.  The fitness center has been busier than ever with the new expanded hours and ability of students to access fitness.  Keep up the good work and continue to spread the word of the availability of this option. 
Speaking of options, the intramural 3 on 3 basketball program is getting ready to lift off the ground.  See Mr. Green for sign up and details. 

As things continue to calm down from school start up, look to the Conquest blog to start popping up some blog posts with information to help you reach your goals and potential.
