Body Walk rolled into Warren County and set up at Sherman Avenue Elementary School. The weather was beautiful and the help was fantastic! When I parked at the school, a line of teachers, coaches, and adult volunteers from the Core of Engineers were lined up and ready to go. The truck was unloaded quickly and the entire exhibit was set up within an hour. I love it when teamwork makes the job go smoothly.
Thursday and Friday, high school students from the local Allied Health program served as presenters in each station. Some of the girls lined up groups and some handed out workbooks. A few handled passing out and taking up the quiz all third graders take when they come out of the exhibit. The rest were inside, teaching a lesson. Everyone did a great job.
We saw K-3rd grade. Marcus Davis and Brenda McDevitt from Warren county were on hand to help make sure all aspects of the program went smoothly. They were great fun to work with. Take down Friday went smoothly. Principal Ray Hume and several teachers helped with the take down. I’ve never heard a “Body Walk take-down” song before, but thanks to the enthusiasm of one teacher, now I have. It’s catchy.
