Fit Falcon Week

Danielle Carly

 Last week the students at Foothills Elementary participated in a Fit Falcon Week. This activity was done to help the children focus on other activities besides watching TV and playing with other electronics. They were given several activities such as walk/running, jumping jacks, sit-ups, push-ups, and air squats to do each night at home, and repeats of these at school. They were also given some extra ones to do like try a veggie that you had never tried before, encouraging them to eat healthy foods.

We also had a Fit Flacon Night where there were several more activities such as testing veggie knowledge, to learning how/why to keep hand/teeth clean and the best of all the Salem Police Dept. brought in their new K-9 dog and spoke with the kids about drugs. They loved that dog. With all these activities the kids were able to earn little "FIT FEET" that they kept track of throughout the week for each activity they did. After the week was finished the kids that earned a certain amount of feet were able to put their names in a drawing for some prizes.  We felt like the kids had a great time and it was a huge success. Thanks Yolanda Moser and Camilla Simonson for all your work on the Fit Flacon Week.
