OSSE just announced Waterfront Academy as the winner of the DC Healthy Tots Wellness Physical Challenge. The contest correlates with the Promoting Physical Activity topic from the DC Healthy Tots Wellness Guidelines. All contestants sent in 10 minutes fitness videos as well as all staff signing a health pledge and our daily schedule of outdoor exercise and free play time.
"It is truly an honor to be recognized in this category as I am sure it was competitive - everyone wants to ensure children are fit to learn each day," says Melissa Rohan, president of Waterfront Academy.
Students at Waterfront Academy get recess each day and physical education twice a week.
