  • As kids get back into the groove, it’s sometimes hard to gauge how happy they are to be back in school.

    This week, we look at assets in the commitment to learning category, which are #22 and #23.

    The school engagement assets find youth actively involved in their own learning. This is the season when you occasionally see some middle school students outside for part of their learning, collecting bugs for science.

    The project takes the students out of the classroom and demonstrates a hands-on, real world application to education.

  • September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month. The Family YMCA wants to help families understand the risks of childhood obesity and how to incorporate regular physical activity and healthy eating into their lives. 

    Childhood obesity rates have soared over the last few decades. Nationally, one in three children is obese or overweight, and in New Mexico, 32.7 percent of children are affected by this epidemic, according to “F as in Fat: How Obesity Policies Are Failing in America 2009,” a report released by the Trust for America’s Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

    Obesity puts children at risk for chronic diseases often seen in adults, such as high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes.
