Big Elm Elementary Students Participate in 'A Day in the Park'

Posted: Updated:

Students at Big Elm Elementary School in Shinnston spent the day outdoors.

The school bused them over to Shinnston City Park for "A Day in the Park."

Organizers said the day is both a reward and a motivator.

"There's just so much technology now. They play video games all day or sit on the couch all day this is a good time to get them out and get them active," said Johnna Akers, coordinator.

The students went swimming, played in the bouncy house, and participated in group games.

Kaboom recently named Shinnston a "Playful City USA."
