- Anne Gonzalez, Medulla Elementary School
- Community Involvement
The Peep Parade was a Medulla community walk. Families were invited to come to school on March 12 at 8:00 for a 1.5 mile walk through the surrounding community. Fresh fruits, granola bars, juice and water was provided to the participants following the walk. As families enjoyed the refreshments they were able to spend time with the fire department’s Touch a Truck program, observe a K9 demonstration, see rescue equipment and talk with a safety officer, all provided by the Polk County Sheriffs Office. The mobile library was available for students to read and check out books and apply for a public library card. Students that completed the walk received a bag that contained a pedometer, a jump rope, an age appropriate book and many materials on healthy eating and exercise habits.
