Healthy Happenings at Durand

Join us for some FUN & FITNESS!

Get Excited About Getting Healthy!

This year we are partnering with Healthy U to reduce and prevent obesity in our youth. Along with this initiative, we will be working to provide teachers and staff with opportunities to collaborate and make health and fitness improvements together! Monthly activities will be planned for teachers and staff. See below for more information.

Zumba every Tuesday beginning September 20th!

Mrs. Galafa has offered to share her love of dance and fitness EVERY TUESDAY, beginning 9/20, after school. Join her for a Zumba class!! This mix of low-intensity and high-intensity moves is perfect for everyone. Zumba is a total workout, combining all elements of fitness – cardio, muscle conditioning, balance and flexibility, boosted energy and a serious dose of awesome each time you leave class.

Classes will run from approx. 4:00-5:00. Locations TBA.

Petway Elementary School Run, Walk, Roll Against Bullying 5K and Fun Walk

Join us on Sunday, September 25 at Petway School for this first-time event. Participants can race competitively or do the fun walk. If you are interested in participating please let Mrs. Tomlin know BEFORE Wednesday, 9/21, as we will register together. A Durand team is forming NOW!

Join us for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in OCNJ on Oct. 16

All members of the Durand family are encouraged to walk in the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. Not only will you be walking, but helping to save lives at the same time. Last year our team raised over $600 and this year our goal is set for $1000!!!

When you join the Durand team or support us with a donation, the American Cancer Society will be able to help more people touched by breast cancer by funding innovative breast cancer research, providing free comprehensive information and support, and helping people reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it is most treatable.

Every step taken and every dollar raised will help ensure that no one facing breast cancer walks alone.

Thank you!
