VIDEO GAMING AND EXERCISING—WHO SAID YOU CAN'T HAVE IT ALL?


Otisville Elementary students in all grades are engaging in heart-pumping games and activities during their gym period as part of a two-week fitness unit. Demonstrating that technology and fitness can go hand in hand, this week students used the Wii gaming system and Just Dance, a video game, to get moving.

“We have been doing been doing this for the last several years because we want students to see they can use their gaming systems and move at the same time,” said Stephanie Giufre, physical education teacher. “The students always seem to enjoy the dancing, and this year even Officer Jaime Johnson joined in!”

Families are encouraged to follow the lead by having family dance nights and favoring video games that require physical activity.
