|The hit of every Thanksgiving! Nurse Kohler with Principal Oswald|
|A good reminder: Keeping physically active is important, even when the days start to chill...|
Now more than ever (due to being in a mostly virtual world) it is important to work in some exercise and fresh air. East Coventry Elementary School students were encouraged to do more walking both in school and outside of school. The week after Thanksgiving (November 30 to December 4), the school celebrated the annual "Burn the Bird" including staff, students, and families. Every day, participants could take a short walk outside, even if it is a loop around their home. Everyday that the student walks, they would color in part of a paper cut out of a shoe. By the end of the week students should have a fully decorated shoe that they can share with their class! In keeping with tradition, classrooms welcomed a very special visitor who encouraged all their healthy behaviors (Principal Oswald is such a good sport)!
