NORWAY, Mich. (WLUC) - At Norway-Vulcan School, the Knights are now one of 80 schools in Michigan to join an innovative health and wellness based program. Called the “Building Healthy Communities” program, the grant provides students and teachers with training, curriculum, equipment and funds to create a healthy school environment.
Through this, the Knights recently received a convenient mobile cart filled with balls, hula hoops, and jump ropes to make recess more active.
“This cart is perfect for indoor recess especially on the cold winter days or rainy days. You can do some many things with this stuff, it doesn't have to be a certain thing. I want them to explore and try new things with this equipment,” said Carly Kelly, kindergarten through sixth-grade physical education teacher.
This is Norway’s third year participating. The past two years, students learned nutrition by making healthy snacks and smoothies.
