October 2 at 10 am is to have the whole school (TK-8th) participate in “Healthiest State Annual Walk”. The annual walk is an opportunity for our school to join thousands of other Iowans in walking for 30 minutes on October 2. Also, the plan is to have 8th graders walk with TK and K, 7th graders walk with 1st graders, and 6th graders walk with 2nd graders. The TK-5th grade will be able to utilize this day as one of their two PE classes for the week.
