With school winding down and the weather getting nice, Turkey Valley CSD has been itching to be up and out of their desks. The Wellness Team planned a Go the Distance May event through Live Healthy Iowa to promote physical activity along with school pride and mentorship. The intent was to have the whole school walk around the track, but rainy weather required us to walk the hallways and gyms instead.
Rainy weather couldn’t stop us from having fun though! We matched the high school students with the elementary classes and everyone had a great time. The younger students really look up to the high schoolers and it was fun to see their excitement when they paired up with their buddies J. Funny stories were told, role models were found and some dancing was done too!
After 20 minutes of walking, students were ready to head back to class, energized and prepared for the rest of their school day. The walk went so well that teachers were even commenting that they could do this once a month…hopefully this can be added in next year!
