FES Falcons On The Fly:
On September 13th Firelands Elementary kicked-off the eleventh year of Falcons on the Fly, a walking/jogging program for all students. A huge thanks to the Firelands Elementary PTG and Bettcher Industries for making this program possible, as well as to our many parent volunteers! The FHS marching band played and created a fun atmosphere as the elementary students walked and ran their first laps of the year. The main objective of this program is to increase the amount of structured, physical activity time spent by the children. Students learn the lifelong benefits and enjoyment of walking/jogging. Falcons on the Fly helps make recess time be spent more constructively by all students. Students may choose to do one lap, then play something else – or they can choose to walk/jog the whole recess.
