The West Beaver Elementary School, McClure, recently participated in Project ACES, which takes place as part of National Physical Fitness and Sports Month along with National Physical Education Week. It has been labeled "the world's largest exercise class." Since 1989, millions of children from all over the world have exercised together to promote proper health and fitness habits. About 270 students and staff members participated in the fun at West Beaver Elementary. The children formed grade-level circles and enjoyed nearly a half hour of dance and movement activities led by Kay Poeth. They also got their blood pumping as they boogied to such tunes as the "Chicken Dance," "Mexican Hat Dance," "Hokey Pokey" and the "Twist." Project ACES is an acronym for All Children Exercise Simultaneously. Shown are second-grade teachers Heather Portzline and Beth Rowles holding the limbo stick as Jordan Ewing and Noah Ettinger see how low they can go.
