"This was the second year the school's teachers organized the "Family Fun and Fitness Night," to get parents engaged with their children inside the school, said Principal Ellyn Gallant. "It's probably our most well-received event throughout the school year," said Gallant. "We had 222 people sign up." Lillie-Marie, 8, who also participated last year, said she couldn't pick her favorite activity. "All of them are really good," she said, adding playing sports is a good way "to bond" and "just hang out." Eunice Sirianos, the physical education teacher at the school, put the event together. "The families love it," she said."

Carol Kozma writes about an Elementary School that packs their gym every year with teachers, parents and kids to play games, get fit and learn about healthy habits. Combining play and physical education sounds perfect to us! #fitschools
