Fit night for families

The Healthy Generations Committee of Scarselli Elementary School would like to thank the following groups for their generous help in making the first annual Family Fitness Night a big success: Wal-Mart, Raleys, Nature’s Bakery and the Scarselli Elementary PTO. Healthy Generations is a program which challenges schools to take the lead in creating a healthy atmosphere not only for students, but for all members of the school community. Examples include such categories as school meals, employee wellness, and competitive foods and beverages (snacks and drinks for sale on school grounds). Family Fitness Night was a perfect example of bringing together students, adults and all members of the Scarselli community in a setting of easy, noncompetitive, and fun activities. The over-arching theme was a focus on diet, cardiovascular activities and fitness components. First Lady Michelle Obama has endorsed the program and slowly but surely it has started to gain traction in countless schools around the country. Scarselli is pleased to be a part of the effort to create a healthier environment for kids and adults alike.
