Crunch Out Obesity

Fredericktown 4th grade students participated in a physical activity and nutrition program (Sponsored by United Way, Knox County Health Dept. and the YMCA) during the months of October and November. All students received a free exercise ball and learned great tips about how to get fit and eat the correct portion size of the right foods. The program culminated with an essay contest.

Congratulations to Taylor Thorne, Callie Carpenter, Luke Overholt and Carter Mull as this year’s Crunch Out Obesity essay contest winners! The students were to explain how the Crunch Out Obesity program has improved their health through physical activity and better nutritional habits. This year’s Fredericktown overall winner was Carter Mull!
