Schools are paving the way to better health
Tuesday, August 21, 2012
With a focus on wellness and physical activity, two local schools have installed walking paths.
Helen Baller and Dorothy Fox elementary school Parent Teacher Association members spent approximately two years fund-raising for the projects.
The paved walking track at Helen Baller circles the perimeter of the school and ends at the playground. It is one-quarter mile loop.
The track at Dorothy Fox was converted from an existing gravel path to a paved version. It loops around the perimeter of the playground and into the existing play area.
