Go The Distance Day

Fourth graders across the district attended Loras for Go the Distance Day learning about fitness and staying healthy. They rotated through exercise stations led by Loras students. The event was sponsored by Hy-Vee.  Fourth graders did a 5 week fit challenge leading up to the event and had the most participation across the district.  They won a smoothie and fruit pizza party at Kennedy to be held later in May.  Enjoy the photo album of activities.
