Third Annual Health Fair
- Karl Wendell, Q I Roberts Middle School
- Community Involvement, Student Leadership, Success with Funds, Teamwork
On February 11, we held our annual Health and Wellness Fair. As in past years, we had organizations from the community come to show students how to improve their health by educating them in the areas of physical, mental, and healthy eating habits. The presenters came from the areas of physical activity, mental, and emotional health resources and miscellaneous organizations who offered health screenings, emergency training from CPR to Local Law enforcement. This year we had over 400 participating from our school. In addition, we had about 30-40 adults from the community join in. Participants were given a sign-off sheet and were entered into a drawing for items of athletic equipment like soccer balls, footballs, basketballs, and other items related to physical activity. Because we are in which over 80% of our students qualify for free or reduced lunch, giving students the opportunity to obtain this equipment helps to expand the long-term impact of the event.
