Cherokee Ridge students and teachers "Power Up" for fitness

Posted: Updated:
WALKER COUNTY, GA (WRCB) -

Cherokee Ridge Elementary School in Walker County observed "Power Up for 30 Day" on Wednesday.  This is a day to promote physical activity, health and academic achievement in our elementary schools.  Research shows a strong positive relationship between physical activity and academic achievement.  Incorporating just 30 minutes of physical activity into the daily school routine can make children more alert and ready to learn.  More that 600 schools signed the Power Up for 30 pledge.

PE teacher Bobby Watson has worked with the students over the past several weeks on 3 dances and 1 dance/exercise routine.
