What a GREAT day we had today! This morning Barrows enjoyed our first ever "wellness" assembly. Our day kicked off with a walk-to-school day, followed by health and wellness stations for our all-school assembly. Students travelled with their 'book buddy' classes and experienced a variety of health and wellness activities including jump roping, hula hooping, nutrition relay races, recycling toss, and 'fitness dice' challenge. Barrows students worked so hard, showed wonderful respect and effort at every stop.
We could not have held this event without our amazing volunteers.
