Kids are Climbing the Walls!

Students in Junior Kindergarten through 8th grade have recently begun to experience a new way to strengthen their bodies while promoting teamwork, sell-confidence and risk taking on the new traversing wall recently installed in the Small Gym.

Leaders in Parker’s Physical Education Department decided to add the feature to their offerings after seeing it demonstrated at conventions and conferences and during school observations. With the wall now in its third week of use, Department Chair Jan Zoufal shared, “So far, the students who have been introduced to the wall are enthusiastic and excited and love the new challenge in the curriculum.”
