With wellness being a focus of Chatham Central Schools, CMS held a school-wide wellness day where students learned about a variety of health and safety topics. In 6th grade, students go their heart rates up with exercise, learned from their teachers about brain health and disease prevention, practiced mental focus exercises, and learned how to prevent and escape fires with the Chatham Fire Department. 7th graders took on a fitness challenge with trainers from Club Life, learned how to make tasty snacks from vegetables with educators from Katchkie Farm, gained some financial awareness with the Cornell Cooperative Extension, and learned about healthy boundaries from the Child Advocate center. In 8th grade, students practiced self-defense moves with the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office, ate healthy snacks with the Cornell Cooperative Extension, heard from CHS graduates, and learned about the dangers of vaping from the Tobacco Free Alliance.
