One of the main goals of the RLS Physical Education program is to promote and encourage good nutrition and hydration. With the warm days of Summer still upon us, it is important to remember that proper hydration will not only help students to feel better, but it will them perform better on the field and in the classroom.
Proper hydration means consuming at least 8-10 cups of water per day. If it is a very warm day and students are participating in a vigorous after school activity where lots of fluids are lost from perspiration, it will be necessary to drink even more. The general rule of thumb is 4 ounces of fluid for every 20 minutes of activity.
