We celebrated our Healthy Zone status last week. It was a beautiful day filled with smiles, sweat and hearts pumping. Two parents (former Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders), taught the entire school a flash mob dance to the song Move Your Body. This song is the official song of the Lets Move initiative that Michelle Obama is involved in. Healthy Zone School goals align with this movement as well. They are focussed on improving the health of our children, which in turn will improve the health of our Nation. Part of being a Healthy Zone School, includes an event to promote healthiness. At our school, we chose a dance to celebrate, and it was so much fun!
We also invited student groups from our local high school to model to our kids how teenagers work towards being healthy through exercise. Our kids loved them!
We are proud to be a Healthy Zone School and look forward to continuing our partnership with United Way and The Cooper Institute. More great things are sure to come our way!
