Students participating in fitness night activities

LAWRENCE, NEW YORK (MAY 2022)—Fitness Night was a huge success at Lawrence Primary School! Families, students, and staff were invited to a night out to spend their time learning about all the diverse ways to keep their bodies healthy.


Healthy lifestyle education is crucial, especially for school-age children. Developing a healthy lifestyle at a young age increases the chances that a person will continue living a healthy lifestyle in their adult years. Lawrence Primary School hosted Fitness Night to highlight the positive outcomes of healthy living. Everyone had a great time learning about healthy food, exercises, and mindfulness to create a healthy lifestyle. There were smoothie stations, a Taekwondo instructor, and learning activities such as the MyPlate sticker worksheet that everyone had the opportunity to participate in.
