Mrs. Casey Privette's 1st grade students exercising for one minute while in computer lab.

Weddington Elementary students participated in Jam World Record 2012 on Thursday, September 27. Schools in all fifty states were invited to participate in the campaign by joining together at 10:00 a.m. to take a fitness break and exercising for one minute.

The event's purpose was to raise awareness about the importance of making exercise a daily habit. Kids who learn healthy habits at a young age build stronger bones and muscles. Daily activity improves mental clarity, productivity and mood and aids in preventing many cancers and diseases.
