Move and Chill
- Jean Robinson, Howe Elementary School
- Access to Healthy Foods, Physical Activity Participation, Student Leadership, Teamwork
Howe Elementary teamed up with the school Parent-Teacher Community (PTC) for a fun night of activity and relaxation. Families were invited to the gym (moved from outside due to weather) for an obstacle course/walk. Parents and students participated in a series of warm-up stretches and then eight stations consisting of hula hoop agility hop, dancing, jumping jacks, nutrition quizzes, relaxation-yoga, and water quiz stations. Families were given samples of various cheeses and flavored milks, received participation ribbons, and four lucky families won a family activity game to take home. After completing the gym events, families were invited into the cafeteria for a popcorn and movie night.
