After running their popsicle laps students participated in a fifteen station circuit working on muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardiorespiratory endurance, balance, and motor skill development. Working hard is a choice that we all make every day. Wildcat Country continues to grow and prove to themselves that it is their choice to get bigger, faster, stronger, and smarter every day!
15 stations for you and your partner to complete. One minute of living active at each station. You know what intensity level number 4 looks like! Show yourself that you can get better today!
Living Active is about wanting to make yourself better. In Wildcat Country we are determined to become bigger, stronger, faster, and smarter each and every day. Strong minds and strong bodies make healthy smiles!
Our ‘Popsicle Run’ is back! Each grade will compete against one another to see which class has the best cardiorespiratory endurance. First graders will walk, jog, or run for seven straight minutes outside. Grades 2-5 will walk, jog, or run for ten straight minutes. The goal is to get as many laps around the playground as possible. The class, in each grade, that has the most laps will have a twenty-minute popsicle/recess with Mr. O’Brien at the end of school on Friday!

May the strongest hearts win!
First graders finished their fitness testing and headed outside to the blacktop for a tag game. The game, ‘Fruit Tag,’ and the objective was to learn some of the items that fit into the fruit food group. After playing fruit tag and explaining the importance of eating fruit everyday we spent the last few minutes cooling down with some grapes.
Xiana has been in girls on the run and one of the hardest working wildcats we have. Great job Xiana! Syringa cross country, get ready for this girl!
