Training Day for New Fitness Equipment

September 29, 2017

This week we had Train the Trainers Day for our newly installed state of the art outdoor and indoor fitness equipment which was made possible by an almost $20,000 grant awarded by Project Fit America in conjunction with HSHS St. John’s Hospital.  Our PE teacher, Mrs. Lochbaum was trained on the new equipment, along with a cohort of 25 student athletic leaders who will be in charge of training the remaining staff and students in varying levels of ability: beginning, intermediate and advanced.  The equipment requires strength and stamina and comes with curriculum that stresses teamwork and challenge. The school will take part in a two year tracking of the children's improvements through pre and post fitness tests administered each fall and spring.
