Gwin Elementary School has won the “Fuel Up to Play 60” funding grant for this school year. The grant’s total value is $4,000.
Fuel Up encourages children to be active for 60 minutes daily, an ongoing health goal for Gwin students. The $4,000 will help in the school’s WAY (Wellness, Academics, and You) program. The funds will be used to help resurface the outside school track, creating a healthy living mural in the lunchroom and start a school garden. The grant will also help integrate nutrition education and physical activity information into the classroom by encouraging students to make healthy living choices.
Gwin Elementary is also receiving a $7,000 grant from Rep. Paul DeMarco to go toward the remaining cost of resurfacing the track.
