BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y. -- Todd Elementary School’s Wellness Committee challenged students to be active during recess by hosting the inaugural Turkey Trot and Turkey Tango on Friday, Nov. 21.
Kindergarten, first- and second-graders had the chance to participate in a group cha cha slide dance, followed by a freeze dance, during recess as part of the Turkey Tango. Wellness Committee volunteers passed out blue and orange beads to students for the festive dances.
Third-,fourth-, and fifth-grade students gathered during their recess periods for a Turkey Trot around the field, with each participant receiving a medal and water after a leisurely jog.
The initiative promoted exercise, healthy habits and overall wellness to Todd students.
