Brown Blazers Join the UIC Kinesiology Team!
- Karie Sahly, William Brown Elementary School
- Community Involvement
The third grade Brown Elementary students have joined forces with 25 students from the University of Illinois kinesiology program during physical education class every Friday! The mentoring program provides the students at Brown leadership skills that will help improve their knowledge in regards to nutrition and how to be fit for a lifelong goal. At the end of the program, the students will be able to reach out into their own communities, teaching friends, community members, and family how to be more healthy. This image shows a MyPlate activity in which the mentors explain to the students about alternative healthy choices that the students can put on their plates during breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
