Next Eastchester School District Wellness Event

Tuesday January 16   7:00pm Eastchester Middle School Cafeteria

Join us for an hour of demonstrations, tips and interactive fun!  This event in the ongoing wellness initiative is for families – and children of all ages are welcome.

We will begin the night with a healthy baking demonstration by EHS grad Anna Larkin.  Anna was a recent contestant on the Food Network Show, Bakers vs. Fakers.  Anna won the contest, even though she makes her living as a registered nurse in New York City!

She will show us how to make a healthy and delicious chocolate chip cookie cake – with samples for all!

Then you can make the rounds and visit various stations:

·        Meet Eleanor, a therapy dog, who visits students in our schools.

·        Try some healthy snacks from Trader Joe’s and visit with two reps from the store, Giovanna Bella Cruz and EHS grad Suzanne Longo.

·        Learn some yoga moves from parent and resident Marianne Bateman who will demonstrate that yoga is for kids.

·        Meet your DARE officer and find out more about the in-school drug abuse prevention and education program.

·        Try out some fitness moves under the guidance of a coach from the Equinox Fitness Center in Eastchester.

·        Check out some health and wellness books from the Eastchester Library, right on the spot.  No library card?  No problem – you can sign up that night.

·        Learn about treatment in the drug abuse field from another EHS alum, Alexandra Luciano, who will have a table with information on local mental health resources.
