What an amazing gift!

With dramatic “Survivor” music playing in the background, 18 Page Elementary classroom champions stepped up the microphone on the high school auditorium stage. In front of all their classmates and some family members, the contestants answered detailed questions about books they read.
With the music blasting students drummed their ripstix on the mat beneath their feet, then held the ripstix high above their heads hitting them together to the rhythm of the music. The exercise routine, called Pound, gave students a complete cardio workout combined with a little stretching, strengthening, a rock-n-roll flair, and a whole lot of smiles!
