Walkers program helps students be more physically active

Thursday, September 19, 2019 by BERNADETTE SUKLEY in School

Every Wednesday during recess, weather permitting, there is a group of purpose-driven Weisenberg Elementary students doing laps around the entire playground.

These purpose-driven youngsters are rewarded with beads which they can use to craft a necklace of their favorite colors, school colors or even spell out their names.

The walking program started about four years ago as a way to encourage students to be more active.

Angela Schmoyer, coordinator and PTO volunteer, has a tray of beads which are used as incentives to make the exercise worthwhile.
