The purpose of the 12 Days of Fitness Bulletin Board was to motivate students to exercise over the holiday break. The board was used as a visual to accompany the song we all sang. The 12 Days of Fitness exercises go along with the song "12 Days of Christmas" tune.

The students would often walk down the hall and do one of the exercises! They also liked the 3D garland and the cotton balls on top of the stocking hats!
