With the grant, a new Healthy Communities program will be available to participate in many schools throughout the corporation, such as Boston Middle School, Handley Elementary, Kingsford Heights Elementary, Indian Trail Elementary, Kingsbury Elementary, LPHS, Kesling Middle School, and Riley Elementary. All school staff and others from the community are welcome to join.

The program will take place over an eight week period, beginning on Monday, January 29th and concluding on Thursday, March 22nd.

“Our simple goal is to get our staff and community to participate in healthy activities,” Scott Upp, assistant principal at LPHS, said.

Healthy Communities will engage in a variety of activities, such as walking, Zumba, Yoga, and Strength Training. In the future, sessions for Weight Watchers and Stress Management may become available as well.

On Mondays, Boston will hold their sessions, Kingsford Heights, Riley, and LPHS will on Tuesdays, Kesling will on Wednesdays, and on Thursdays, Indian Trail, Kingsbury, and LPHS will hold theirs.
