César Chávez Elementary dice -- A Movernos!
On Friday, October 17, parents, students and staff joined together in a school community effort to get moving and stay active in the first school-wide “Move-a-thon”. Every student engaged for thirty minutes in an activity that included running, walking, skipping, jumping rope, hula-hooping or dancing. The goal was to see 100% participation and build on the school’s commitment to encourage our students and families to integrate active play and exercise into their daily routines. “The event was a tremendous success, there is nothing quite like watching students, teachers and families building community while laughing and playing together,” said Chávez Principal Denise Beck. Parent organizer Raychel Adler offered, “we were looking to find a way to be equitable and support programs that are important to our school. It really brought a feeling of good cheer to the blacktop.”
