Healthy and well at our school!

New Scotland Elementary School kicked off their Health and Wellness Day Thursday morning with a brisk one-mile walk around neighborhood.

Students and staff started with warmups in the school courtyard, then proceeded down New Scotland Avenue escorted by members of the Albany Police Department mounted patrol.

The whole school will be moving throughout the day. Albany High student-athletes will be on hand to coach students in baseball, basketball, football, lacrosse, soccer, softball, track, volleyball and wrestling. In addition, 15 Love will provide tennis tips to students.

Take a look at a Facebook photo album from the warmups and walk. (You don't need a Facebook account to see the photos linked in the highlighted text. A window may appear that says, "To see more from Albany City Schools on Facebook, log on or create an account,” but you can dismiss it by clicking “not now.”)
