The Vineland Education Association, through a NJEA PRIDE/FAST grant, held its annual Family Fitness Night at Sabater Elementary School on February 28. Over 250 people attended.
The Family Fitness Night is an evening designed to encourage healthy living habits and physical activity for Sabater students and their families. Sabater parents had the opportunity to pre-register or register at the door. They could choose between following five different rotations of activities. Activities included Basketball, Volleyball, Power Walking, Zumba, Hip-hop Dance and Self Defense. All participants did at least four of the above activities and received a complimentary healthy snack and drink.
All families and volunteers met in the cafeteria and each family received a complimentary VEA prize pack (including a VEA labeled backpack, sport bottle and Healthy Eating Habit coloring book). They also received a raffle ticket and rotation card upon entering the building. Prizes were raffled off at the beginning and the end of the event. Door prizes that were donated included gift cards to various stores in the area, as well as memberships to local gyms in the area.
Overall, Family Fitness night at Sabater is a popular night of activity that promotes life-long healthy habits to our students and their families.
