Fit Families, Fun Fridays

We had an amazing turnout at this month's Fit Family event! Right at 100 Gators got together to do some SMART activities, GoNoodle Jamming, and rock climbing - with a special guest from Roka Climbing!

It is so fun to spend time together being healthy!

Gage Elementary Book Drive

Our school will be having a book drive beginning Monday, March. 6th through Friday March 10th. Please have your children bring their “no-longer wanted” or outgrown books to school. Remember books are gifts that can be opened again and again. These books will be used to help replenish our 100 Book Challenge book bins. As an incentive for bringing in books students will earn one ticket per book that will enter them into a drawing for one of five $5.00 carnival punch cards. Rob Majerus will be in the Atrium the week of March 6th from 8:45 am-9:15 am to collect the books being donated.

Gage Garden Team!

Gage's Garden Team (pictured above minus JoAnn Judge-Dietz from Olmsted County Public Health and Caitlin Anfinson from Minnesota Extension) presented Gage's garden story at the Minnesota School Garden Conference this week.

They are energized to start planning garden expansion and activities for this spring and summer. If you'd like to join them in any capacity - planning, planting, summer maintenance, etc. - let Jessica know!
