Levittown students attending Gardiners Avenue Elementary School in the Levittown School District rocked out to the music of the Brady Rymer Band in celebration of Healthy Snack Day. Sponsored by the PTA, the event was one of two yearly events aimed to teach and reinforce lessons on healthy lifestyle habits.
Prior to the assembly, physical education teachers Rondi Casey and Christine Paprocky taught a fitness unit, which contained physical activities relating to the five components of fitness including muscular strength, endurance, flexibility, cardio vascular fitness and body fat composition.
“Healthy snacks are the right choice all the time and let you do what you love,” Casey told the students. “Your body is a machine, and what you put into it is what makes it run.”
In addition to the live music, the PTA also cut up healthy fruits for the students to eat while watching the band perform songs about healthy lifestyles.
