Fit Week at Walsh

Access to Healthy Foods,  Physical Activity Participation

This week was Fit Week at Walsh Intermediate School. The Fit Kids planned a week of menu choices and physical activities in which the whole school could participate. We had a different after school activity for three different days and a veggie pizza and yogurt parfait of the day to showcase what we can now grow in our Tower Garden. Students could come to one or all of the activities and were given information about how to sign up for the activities in school or in the community after the free event. Our activities included Yoga, Crossfit and an open gym day.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

The Fit Team worked with our food service people to incorporate the vegetables grown in the tower garden into the daily menus. We also added fruit and yogurt parfaits to our daily menu. Students could sign up to continue after school activities and the Fit Kids will be holding an open gym day twice a month.
