York Elementary PTA Receives John Rex Endowment Grant for Healthy Weight Project

Children and families in the York Elementary school community will soon have a whole new way to get moving while they learn. With support from a recent grant from the John Rex Endowment, the York Elementary School PTA has developed a detailed rendering of a planned playground renovation and paved school track, which will provide a safe space for active play, team sports, passive play and outdoor learning activities.

The PTA is working with York Elementary School, and they plan to break ground in October 2013. The goal of the project is to increase the amount of moderate to vigorous physical activity that students at the school participate in every school day.
