Green Ribbon

To win national Green Ribbon recognition we had to show how we had made changes to promote EXERCISE.  One example of our commitment to exercise is our participation in the World Fit walk.  By taking part in this event we are trying to increase fitness and minimize risk for obesity.

This 1.5-minute video highlights the World Fit Walk.

Other steps we have taken to provide students with opportunities to exercise are...
  -expanded our athletic fields and added an outdoor basketball court & new playground
  -increased the number of sports teams supported
  -refurbished our gymnasium with new lighting, air flow systems and (soon) bleachers
  -added a fitness room for those not interested in traditional P.E. and for disabled students
  -added Dance, Tae Kwon Do and outdoor play classes (among others) to before- and after-school programs
  -made available staff membership to the Collins Perley Center at no charge
  -developed on-line City School exercise videos can be used indoors on poor weather days.
