Lamphere elementary students recently participated in Project ACES (All Children Exercising Simultaneously) with activities organized by our physical education teachers Craig Kirby (Hiller & Simonds) and Jon Ziaja (Edmonson & Lessenger).
was created in 1989 as a method of motivating children to exercise. ACES takes place on the first Wednesday in May as part of National Physical Fitness and Sports Month along with National Physical Education Week. It has been labeled as "the world's largest exercise class" by the media.
To help promote healthy lifestyles the Nutrittion, Fitness & Me Wellness teams in each building provided fresh milk and goodie bags for each of the participants. These items were donated by the United Dairy Industry of Michigan and the Apple Council of Michigan.
We've posted some photos of our students,
