The school participated in a new nationwide initiative called Health Moves Minds.

"The whole program is geared towards how does physical activity," physical education teacher Todd Crumbacker said, "How does it improve the physical and mental health, not just of students, but everyone. So we are combining that kind of health fair type setting but we are just doing it outside in the community and bring awareness to this area of town."
