Ms. Matthews’ advisory envisions, creates, and runs health fair for Workshop students, staff

Ms. Matthews’ advisory studied the body and nutrition during the third term. As a culminating project, the advisory created a health fair for the entire school. Students were responsible for designing and running their own health stations. The sophomores ran tables that taught visitors about healthy recipes, exercise techniques, nutrition labels, and mindful living. Ms. Miki Palchick from the Urban Nutrition Initiative worked with Ms. Matthews’ class throughout the spring as they completed this project.
