    Your Weekly Health and Wellness Tip for this week is: Before you begin a physical activity, be sure to stretch first. Help yourself avoid injuries by stretching each time you exercise. Simple stretches before and after you work out or engage in physical activity can activate your muscles and remain pain free.


    At Washington we Honor Community, Show Excellence, and Think Critically.


    Have a great evening, and I look forward to us getting 1% Better Every Day this week.
