Variety of activities at

Pine Grove's Health Day

by Mikaela Kuefler

Pine Grove Middle School ran a Health Day so that kids could learn
about improving health and wellness on November 22.
Students attended programs so that they could learn about various health
topics from professionals working within the community. Students
attended one program in each topic in small groups, throughout the day.
Some of the program's involved physical training, such as Zumba,
interval training, and HITT training. Other programs involved nutrition,
mental health, and blood borne infections.
Students from Parkland Composite High School also assisted with the
World Café as part of their flex day project.
All students from Pine Grove participated in the World Café presentation
to discuss various health topics and how these topics relate to the school.
During the presentation, students worked in groups to come up with ideas
on how the school community can improve health and wellness.
