Physical education was snowshoeing time at Soo Hill School. All the students at Soo Hill - kindergarten through third grade - with the help of volunteer parents, strapped on a pair of snowshoes during their physical education times and walked-jogged the perimeter of the playground behind the school. After their warm-up, the youngsters, including the kindergarten students of Heidi Miron, enjoyed a variety of relay races, and finished up with blazing their own trails in the snow.
Second-grade students of Ruth O’Toole show off their showshoes as they take part in the winter exercise program. The students are: from left, Ethan Bryan, Kendra Boosamra, Morgan Makosky, Daniel Smith, Keagan Kang, Guerin DeForest. The snowshoeing time was a great way to introduce a healthy, fun, winter activity.
Karina Hiltunen, a second-grade student, appears to be ahead of the pack as the students as they blaze a trail in the snow. Soo Hill designated the activity as their official kick-off for their Fuel Up To Play 60 Program. Fuel Up is an in-school nutrition and physical activity program sponsored by the National Dairy Council, the NFL, and the US Dairy Association to help encourage today’s youth to lead healthier lives.
