 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.
