Lakeview Elementary students go skating

February is ‘Student Wellness Month’ for Negaunee Public Schools. The goal behind the program is to get kids active.

Today students at Lakeview Elementary in Negaunee continued with their wellness program.

Students took to the ice…and some even hit the ice, as first, second, and third graders got into the winter sport spirit.

Students, teachers, and parents all participated in the open skate. This is just one of many activities planned for February.

Although there were many first time skaters it did little to dampen the fun. In fact whether they were on their feet or on their bottoms the kids enjoyed the activity.

As part of wellness month students are also taught how to eat better, and given tips on living a healthy lifestyle.
