Weighing Your Options Part 3

You may be used to seeing sports like basketball and volleyball in a gym class, but what about ballroom dancing or roller-skating?

Molly Wilson, the Instruction Supervisor for Warren County Schools, says: "Our physical education teachers really work hard to provide kids with exposure to a wide range of activities that they could enjoy for the rest of their lives".

The district wants its students to learn how to make healthy choices at a young age, so they'll continue to do so through adulthood.

Wilson says: "Being active and healthy for your entire life is really a mindset and it's a habit that develops through your life".

In Warren County Schools the students participate in bowling, ballroom dancing, roller-skating, and fitness.

Since many of the activities aren't scored Wilson says the kids see their physical activity levels as a personal challenge.

She says: "Much of this makes the child competitive against themselves rather than competing against the kids that are going to be good athletes".

Last year the Warren County School District put a grant it received to work. With the money from the Carol M. White P.E.P. grant the district bought equipment and provided a state-of-the-art facility to Warren East Middle and high schools.
