Snowshoeing at South!

Although many people may not be happy about a blizzard, the 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students at South School are very excited.  This past spring, the Physical Education Program at South School received grant money from the Andover Fund for Education and the Andonna Society to sponsor an innovative educational activity – snowshoeing! Snowshoeing provides students an outstanding cardiovascular workout, an introduction to a wonderful lifelong activity as well as an opportunity to get some fresh air in the winter months. It is a lifelong skill that can be shared by families.

During one of their PE classes per week, students dress warmly with snow boots, snow pants, gloves, mittens, hats and warm jackets and venture out into the wintery wonderland with Meghan Matson or with Dave Giribaldi. Some snowshoe games and activities include: relays, hikes, obstacle courses and snowshoe baseball.

The students will continue to take advantage of Mother Nature’s gift of snow throughout the next few months!
