Elementary Spring Walking/ Jogging Program Begins

The kindergarten kicked off the spring walking program Monday morning before school.  The rain broke about 8 a.m. allowing time for students to get a couple of laps in before classes began.

The Ava Elementary Spring Walking/Jogging Program began Monday, April 13, and will continue through Friday, May 8.
Ann Leonard, local director of the Healthy Schools/Healthy Communities project, says, “Eat breakfast first, then join us on the playground.”
Each day a designated grade will be on the 3rd/4th grade playground from 7:45-8:05 a.m.
Monday is kindergarten; Tuesday, 1st grade; Wednesday, 2nd grade; Thursday, 3rd grade; and Friday, 4th grade.
On Saturday, April 18, Bears Den will be hosting the Spring Carnival & Art Show from 5 to 7 p.m. Healthy Schools/Healthy Communities will join the carnival with some Family Fun & Fitness on the 3rd/4th grade playground.
Any time from 5 to 7 p.m. you can come to the playground and walk two laps with your family and friends.  After you walk, you will be able to put your name in a drawing for a chance to win fun prizes!
There will also be jump rope and hula hoop contests on the playground from 5 to 7 p.m.
Please come by the playground for Fun & Fitness! If you have any questions see Ann Leonard [email protected]
