Mr. Reynolds’ PE Class Awarded
Healthy Habits for Life Grant
Mr. Brad Reynolds was recently awarded a $1,000 Healthy Habits for Life grant from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas to use with his PE classes. His grant was a portion of the $150,000 in Healthy Habits for Life grants that were awarded to schools across Kansas this year. The grant dollars will be used during 2015 for a variety of programs. Some schools will use their grants to organize walking programs, health fairs and other activities, while others intend to purchase nutrition curriculum, heart monitors, exercise equipment or healthy snacks. Completing its ninth giving cycle, the BCBSKS Foundation has now distributed 923 Healthy Habits for Life grants in excess of $820,000. Mr. Reynolds’ grant will be used to purchase obstacle course equipment and other items to support building students’ agility.
