Running Club Returns

Lakemont Elementary School’s Running Club took a break during the 2011-12 school year, but Healthy School Team Leader Jon Siegel said it will be back during the 2012-2013 school year “with renewed energy” on Monday afternoons.

While the Running Club was on break, the school offered plenty of other activities for students, including a Walking Club held three mornings a week, Lakemont’s Olympic Field Day, and Zumba classes for staff.

There also were Wellness Wednesday nutrition talks, a Fruit Week in March, a Heart Healthy Foods project in February and Lessons on the My Plate/Five Food Groups guide to healthy eating in March and April.

Lakemont also participated in TV Turn Off Week in April, designed to get families to turn off the TV and enjoy time together.
