Federalsburg Elementary Celebrates Every Kid Healthy Week

(PDF) May 18, 2018 – Students at Federalsburg Elementary School recently participated in the sixth annual Every Kid Healthy Week, April 23-27, with a variety of health, fitness, and nutrition-themed events. 
  • Every day at mid-morning and mid-afternoon, students and staff took Brain Breaks that consisted of standing and doing some type of fun movement for at least a few minutes. 
  • Specials classes (music, art, gym, media center) all centered lessons and activities around daily themes such as Let’s Get Physical, Footloose, and Run for your Life. 
  • The Police Department conducted a Bike Safety lesson for all students. 
  • Students, families, county commissioner Dan Franklin, school board members George Abner and Kathy Dill, and superintendent Patricia Saelens enjoyed a Bring Your Child to Breakfast Day.
  • Thanks to a donation from Choptank Community Health, students were also treated to apples each morning. 
In addition, a Salad Bar Fundraiser was held in to raise money for a new bike and scooter which were raffled off at the end of the week. 
According to Peggy Warfield, school nurse at Federalsburg and event organizer, “The children have had a wonderful week! I already have requests to do the family breakfast twice next year as well as repeating the whole Every Kid Healthy Week again in 2019.”
