Universal Pre-K takes trip to House of Sports

Universal Prekindergarten students in the Mount Vernon City School District are currently learning about health and nutrition. To support the learning in this unit, pre-K students from across the district took a trip to House of Sports.

Three groups of pre-K students went on this trip: one on Wednesday, January 18, 2023, one on Thursday, January 19, and one on Friday, January 20. On this trip they learned about being healthy and the importance of exercise.  House of Sports therapists and sports staff worked on gross motor skills and balance with a number of physical activities.
