Downtown School teachers and staff were recently featured in the districtwide employee health newsletter. The article commended their creative effort to keep everyone engaged in personal health and well-being. Mrs. V (Deb Van Waardhuizen), the Downtown School’s Wellness Champion, focused the activities on learning about sugar, and included a Price is Right style game of ranking sugar content in various foods! Nice work!
