McKissack Middle School and Paragon Mills Elementary are this year’s big winners in the Healthy Classroom Challenge sponsored by the Office of Coordinated School Health and United Way during Child Health Week. The goal of the challenge was to demonstrate in a two-minute video how teachers and students incorporate physical activity into their daily classroom routine. Angela Lyles and Barbara Laifer and their classes got creative with a Family Fued-style competition at McKissack and a Feelin’ Good Dance Party at Paragon Mills.
