Our end of the school year event for health and wellness is a walk/run around the West Lake in Winona scheduled for the Saturday following the final school day. This year was an especially exciting year with celebrity runners joining us for our before school Workout Wednesday and then sharing stories of their love of running and staying healthy. Students were encouraged to get fit with running or walking the track at Ridgeway Community School.
Another thing to get the students excited was to get small donations and for each dollar, the homeroom group received a shoe that was taped to the wall. The Homeroom with the most shoes would be able to duct tape their teacher and Ms. Jodi, our school coordinator to the wall! That bit of fun play got students very excited! Two homerooms for going very close to being the winners--Mrs. Meyer and Mrs. Johnson. Who would win? Oh, my goodness, it was a tie and they both got the fame of being taped to the wall.
Mrs. Johnson and Mrs. Meyer, the two tying Homeroom teachers!

After lunch, the very exciting kickball game began with 5th Graders verses Teachers. The rules were gone over and agreed on by both sides before the game. Mrs. Cindy Smith making sure all was fair for both teams.
Students and teachers getting ready for the very exciting game. The game goes for 4 innings or one hour which ever comes first. This year, though the teachers were winning 5-4 after 4 innings, it was agreed to continue for the full hour.
In the end Teachers won 5th Graders--10 to 6. Good game by all.
