Body Walk’s last trip of the year was to Wilkins Elementary in Jackson MS. This is a great elementary school. Eugenia Smith booked Body Walk for her county. Everyone was very excited to have BW come. The station volunteers did a lovely job and they had a lot of enthusiasm for presenting the material to the over 500 K-Fifth grade students who came through. Each teacher got a stack of activity books for her students when they finished the tour, and each child got a BW sticker to proudly wear home.
Shirley Wilson did a good job organizing everything for BW to come to her school. Everyone was in place when they needed to be and all the groups came on time for their tour. It was a pleasure to work with her. The media came, two television stations and one newspaper. They all learned that BW is about helping children learn how to be smart from the inside out. As they tour the exhibit, the kids learn how to keep different organs in peak condition. When they keep their organs healthy, they are keeping their whole body healthy.
Body Walk hits the road again in September. We are already booked solid until December! Be sure to check back from time to time over the summer. Good health doesn’t take off for the summer and BW posts won’t either. Check back to see what summer surprises are in store.
