MAY 2022 - The Morristown Central School District’s Wellness Committee recently purchased an outdoor basketball hoop with funds provided by the Health Initiative’s Creating Healthy Schools and Communities Project. This project has provided the district with $2,500 to spend on wellness initiatives for each year of the grant.
This new basketball hoop has allowed students to take their love of basketball outside the four walls of the gym and has added to the recess play offerings for elementary students.
In addition to the basketball hoop, the school district was able to purchase a giant Jenga set for Grade 5 and 6 students. This activity takes a favorite sit-down game to a new life-sized level, requiring students to be physically active to participate and will provide for a great recess activity during inclement weather.
This basketball hoop and game set were received from the Health Initiative’s Creating Healthy Schools and Communities Project, which is funded by the New York State Department of Health.
