Students at Emma C. Chase Elementary School ride the wellness wave

Physical Education class is the perfect place to promote a healthy lifestyle. Emma C. Chase Elementary School Physical Education Teacher,Tamara Coney, is doing just that.

In her classes, Mrs. Coney encourages and teaches students how to take charge of their health. Learning how to be healthy at a young age will help children make healthy choices later on in life.

Some students participated in a poster contest titled, “Ride the Wellness Wave,” that showed how exercise, eating balanced meals and getting enough sleep are important ways to stay healthy.
