Students at Michael A. Maroun Elementary School recently received a lesson in how to stay active outdoors during the cold winter months.
As part of a physical education unit, students in Melissa Bailer’s third grade class learned how to utilize snowshoes, a specific kind of footwear designed for walking over snow without sinking.
After taking their time putting the snowshoes on, students tried out the new equipment.
After a few slips and falls, each student found their balance and together the class walked a lap around the school.
The snowshoes were generously provided to school by the MAM Parent-Faculty Organization after organizing several fundraising initiatives.
