The event will help raise funds for PTA-sponsored events and field trips as well as get families and the community thinking about a healthy lifestyle.
The school is committing to getting its students up and moving this year with events like free dance fitness nights.
Smiling faces filled the school’s gymnasium recently with dancing fun; so much fun, the students and their families may even forget that they are exercising to be healthy.
At the beginning of the year, the school hosted a community block party and open house, which included a nutrition and wellness table.
The school’s running club has started up again on Wednesdays and the annual Game Day at the end of the year is always full of fun physical activities.
