An Energetic Morning in Willye White Park

From healthy trivia, hula hoops to relay races and jump rope, the Walk and Roll to School event in Willye White Park was the place to be early this morning.

Healthy Trivia Hula Hoop Station Scooter Relays

As the students completed each event, they earned a letter of the alphabet. For those successfully completing each station they had the letters that spelled their school, GALE, and were awarded a fitness goody bag.

Principal Washington, Assistant Principal Peters were joined by Colleen Lammel of the Park District and many Gale teachers who led stretching exercises. It’s said that children learn from adults and this group did an outstanding job!

After the stretching warm-up, students and teachers headed for a power walk around the park…and some of us did a power walk to the CTA station!
