Yeager was excited to have Kids-Get-Fit bring their awesome six weeks program of yoga, mindfulness, and zumba to our 3rd grade classes. They loved it!!  We also had a garden that our 3rd , 4th, and 5th grades helped maintain. The students loved eating carrots, spinach and tomatoes from the garden while learning the importance of eating veggies and fruits. We also had Michelle Dehrert from Texas Agri-Life teach our kinder, first, second, third, fourth, and fifth grades all about healthy eating in a six week nutrition program. She even brought healthy snacks for our students to try.
