Wellness at West

Students throughout Long Beach’s West Elementary School participated in a day filled with wellness on May 25, during their Health Fair Olympics event. Classrooms and other areas of the building featured a variety of activities that engaged students in physical activity, promoted safety, incorporated mindfulness and reviewed the significance of healthy lifestyles.
Students got moving in Zumba, hula hoop, Just Dance, relay race and CrossFit workshops. They improved their mind-body connection in yoga and meditation sessions. First aid and beach and sun safety presentations covered important precautions and steps to take to protect oneself. Lifeguards and guests from South Nassau Communities Hospital visited to provide reminders and guidance to the students as we head into the summer season.
