The bulletin board was created to encourage and motivate the students to stay active for at least 60 minutes a day. Placing pictures on the bulletin board give the students ideas and reasons to stay active. walking, playing baseball, swimming tennis and volleyball just to name a few, will enhance student achieve in learning. It's fuel for the body!!The students use the bulletin board to participate in physical activities and exercises.
