Jane A. Hambric School hosted its annual Family Fitness day, an initiative that promotes wellness and health among students and the community, in November. As part of the district’s commitment to offer students a well-rounded education and strengthen home, school and community partnerships, the event encourages students to make healthy lifestyle choices. The school also celebrated receiving two grants: $4,000 from Fuel to Play 60 and $2,000 from Action for Kids. "This is such a great event,” said Joanne Anguiano, principal at Hambric. “We want to motivate students to be healthy. This is also is an amazing way to involve the community. There are so many parents and students having fun with all the games. I love it.”

Students and parents participated in fun football games, such as tire run, kick off and football throw — all located on the football field. Heart rate monitors also tracked heart rates as part of the fitness day.

Kids are excited to walk and try new things especially because their family gets to be a part of it.
