2013 6th Grade Lung Health Walk/Run a Success!!!
13 May 2013
Sixth grade students received a presentation on lung health and the harmful effects of tobacco followed by a Walk/Run. Each student received a red "Love Your Lungs" wrist band as a reward for their participation and a reminder of the importance of lung health, and a booklet "Tips for Teens on Tobacco".
This event was made possible by the help and support of many people. I would like to offer my sincere thanks and appreciation to all who were involved in this event, including but not limited to:
-The Chest Foundation and American College of Chest Physicians for co-sponsoring this event and providing the "Love Your Lungs" wrist bands.
-The PPMS administration, Mr. Mike Sereno and Mr. Mark Peperkorn along with all the 6th grade teachers for their help in organizing and supervising and supporting this event.
-Mrs. Carol Kern, and the office staff for their help in many areas before, during and after the W/R, including collecting all the participation forms from students for the " Love Your Lungs" design contest"!
-The custodial staff for Hanging the W/R banner, preparing the gym ready, and aiding in set-up and clean-up.
-Mrs. Ellen Linnihan and her student, Abbie Taylor for the wonderful and informative presentation.
-The American Lung Association of Wisconsin for providing the pig lungs.
-The Brookfield Police Department and Officer Carol for providing the brochures on "Tips for Teens on Tobacco"
None of this could have been accomplished without your help and support!
Thank You All!
