On Tuesday, May 1, Columbia Elementary School hosted “Get Up and Move and Taste Test” as part of Every Kid Healthy Week.
In each class, every student took part in brain breaks, which were “5-minute bursts of activity to stimulate their bodies and brains.”
Over 600 people participated, all of whom consisted of students, parents, faculty, ALDI volunteers, and other community members.
“Parent and community volunteers help[ed] get kids moving and lead healthy foods taste tests,” a press release about the event says.
Every Kid Healthy Week was made possible this year by grant money from Action for Healthy Kids and funding from ALDI.
In addition to events such as these, Columbia Elementary has been able to buy new things, like PE supplies and offer healthy cooking classes to parents with outside support.
