As part of a lesson plan in health and nutrition, the kindergarten class at All Hallows Academy recently participated in several field events at Father Fox Field at the AHA campus.

The children ran, jumped, hurdled and tumbled their way through several events, wearing Olympic T-shirts they hand painted themselves. They were cheered on by their parents and 8th grade Big Buddies.
