Power Up School Challenge comes to NR
Third- through fifthgraders at all three New Richmond elementary schools, as well as St. Mary School, took part in a PowerUp School Challenge assembly this week, which was led by the Twin Cities Radio Disney team. PowerUp is supported by a designated fund of the Lakeview Foundation in partnership with HealthPartners.
On Monday, March 10, the Radio Disney team was at Paperjack Elementary and Hillside Elementary and then led another set of assemblies on Wednesday, March 12, at Starr Elementary and St. Mary School.
PowerUp is a communitywide initiative to make better eating and physical activity easy, fun and popular for kids and families. The Radio Disney team led the students in a series of dances, trivia quizzes and Q&A sessions during the assemblies to help them learn about healthy fruits, vegetables and different ways to exercise.
