Pontiac Elementary Week of April 20-24


Daleen Ellis is the wellness chairperson for Pontiac Elementary and is required to attend district wellness meetings several times a year. There are certain criteria that each school must meet annually in regards to providing health and wellness initiatives. One of them is to provide activities in which all employees at your school participate. We are meeting this requirement by having time for fitness fun on Friday, April 24th, from 1:30-2:30. Please remember to bring appropriate athletic attire to change into for the afternoon's activities!

Wellness Committee plans activities for school staff:

Kyle Elkins' room = aerobics
Taryn Hixenbaugh = volleyball in PE room
S.Mandrell = kickball outside in field
Ellis = walk the track with your colleagues

Sign up for an activity by Thursday so our Wellness Committee members can plan ahead! All staff members are expected to participate!

A wellness luncheon will be for those who have signed up on the Google doc. It's not too late to participate in this lunch! Everyone that signs up is bringing a healthy dish.

Thank you for promoting and participating in a healthy working environment!
