2016 Walk to School Day
District 146 students and staff participated in International Walk to School Day to demonstrate the importance of healthy living. Upon arriving at school, students were treated to apples and water provided by Quest Food Service.
Walk to School Day is just one initiative of District 146 that stresses the importance of healthy lifestyle choices. Through its "District 146 Gets Fit" program, the District will continue to educate students about healthy food choices, the importance of exercise, and how fun it is to stay fit.
The Road to Central Challenge has Begun
Wednesday, September 14 marked the start of the 2016-2017 Road to Central Challenge as students played a soccer tournament at Kruse elementary school.
The Road to Central Challenge is an intramural competition between the four district elementary schools. The challenge is composed of six different athletic competitions including soccer, volleyball, basketball, bowling, softball, and track.
This challenge gives 5th grade students a chance to represent their school and compete in activities which will prepare them to play sports at Central Middle School. It also introduces students who may some day become friends.
All teams played well in this year's soccer competition, but Fulton came out on top going undefeated in the challenge. The next event will be volleyball at Fulton on November 9.
