OTISVILLE PE DEPARTMENT GETS STUDENTS MOVING WITH Wii


As part of a two-week fitness unit, OES students in all grades are engaging in heart-pumping games and activities during their gym period. Demonstrating that technology and fitness can go hand in hand, this week students used the Wii gaming system and Just Dance, a video game, to get moving. “The Wii Fit sessions motivate students to participate and promote good health through the use of technology that is relevant to today's youth,” Ms. Giufre said. Families are encouraged to follow this lead by having family dance nights and favoring video games that require physical activity. “This is a great idea and it makes my heart stronger,” said a 2nd grade boy in Mr. Uhrig’s class. Next week’s fitness activity is Jump Rope for Heart.
