Bloomer's Healthy State Walk Day
- Paige McGee, Bloomer Elementary School
- Physical Activity Participation, Student Leadership
On October 7, fifth graders at Bloomer walked with their second grade buddies for Iowa's Healthiest State initiative walk. All 99 counties in Iowa participated in the walk. Fifth graders planned the walk, created posters, and talked to the second graders about what they would be doing. Students discussed healthy eating and exercise. With all the hype this generated, all grade levels were partnered up and walked at different times throughout the day. What an impact this had to all of us at Bloomer to be part of this schoolwide healthy walk!
