Feathers for Fitness
- Liza Asch, Equestrian Trails Elementary School

The Wellness Team held a fundraiser from Nov. 1 - Thanksgiving. Every teacher was given a paper turkey (without feathers) to hang on their doors. The Wellness Team sold feathers for a quarter. On each feather was an exercise - all exercises that could be done by any teacher no matter what they were wearing or what shape they were in. In order to add the feather to a teacher's turkey, the teacher along with her/his students, had to perform the exercises. They could put them all together to do during recess or use them as brain breaks throughout the day. The fundraiser was a HUGE success on so many levels! We are thinking about other ways to use this fundraiser (petals for flowers for Spring, gold for the end of the rainbow for St. Patrick's Day, Hearts for Heart month, etc.) once more this year.
