Walking Wednesday Results 10-26-2016
Weekly Walking Wednesdays in October are coming to an end.  However, you can look forward to one walk in November (2nd) and one in December (7th). There will be plenty more in 2017.

On Wednesday this week, 88 students and 12 adults came out for the event.  Cloudy skies, cool temperatures and drizzle were not a deterrent for these hardy regulars.  Once again, the team with the highest participation rate was the Incredibles. Excellent commitment Incredibles!

Here are a few pictures from the walk.

For Snacks today we have bananas
  • Bananas and banana peels make great fertilizer (you can compost them, bury them whole, or cut them in small pieces and mix them with garden soil) because of their phosphorous and potassium content. Roses especially like them.
  • India produces more bananas than any other country on the planet, accounting for about 28 percent of the worldwide crop. (China is number two, with ten percent.)

Students may take two fruit servings with each meal. They must take at least one.
