An event called Bee-Fit was held for Hampstead Hill Academy on October 12, 2012 at Patterson Park.  The purpose of the event was to help students get exercise while raising money for Hampstead Hill’s PTO.  The program was created and run by the PTO staff.

All pre-K to eighth grade students participated in Bee-Fit. The participants ran laps for twenty minutes.  After the twenty minutes, the participants went to get snacks. The adults called students over to different sports and exercises like soccer, sit-ups, hula hoops, badminton, trampolines, art, football, and potato sack racing.

When my friends and I ran laps, we ran 11 laps and had lots of fun. When we did the activities, we listened for the whistle, which let us know it was time to go to another activity. My favorite activities were soccer and the trampolines. Bee-Fit was very successful and a lot of fun!
