Active Schools

We know active kids do better. The national recommendation is for at least 60 minutes of activity everyday (up to several hours). At Wherry, students are active in Physical Education (PE) and at recess. We are adding more ways to help our kids be active. Rising New York Road Runners and Marathon Kids are programs encouraging our students to run, walk and jog--and they're loving it! We will also be adding a Jump Rope for Heart event this year to raise students awareness of heart disease and healthy habits.

Your child is enrolled in a program call Rising New York Road Runners. The goal is for every student to run a marathon (26.2 miles) this school year. They are off to a great start and many of your kids have probably already brought home prizes. Keep up the good work.  The 3rd-5th graders are also enrolled in a running program called Marathon 

We are also taking part in the Billion Mile Race along with thousands of schools across the country. You can check out of running stats at: http://www.billionmilerace.org/register (just enter our zip code: 87116 and select Wherry from the drop down menu to see our school profile)
