HyVee’s KidsFit Club challenged classes across Iowa to the Squat Challenge. Clay Elementary enthusiastically responded, “Challenge Accepted!”

Over 400 classes participated in the challenge and Clay had 6 out of the top 25 classes across the state, including the #1 class!  Centennial also had a class in the top 25.

At Clay
#1 Kriener 4th Grade
# 2 Haas 5th Grade
#3 Hill 4th Grade
#12  Rogers 1st Grade
#15  Apt 5th Grade
#21 Conn 3rd Grade

At Centennial
#23 Combs 3rd Grade

Because of their great success, Clay was chosen as the site for the HyVee KidsFit Coordinators to hold their Zoom presentation to all the other classes across the state. Mrs. Kriener’s class will be featured in their promotion video. All top 25 classes won t-shirts, masks, mini first aid kits, healthy snacks and bonus prizes. Congratulations!

Each student in Mrs. Kriener’s winning class did over 4900 squats during the weeklong challenge. They would squat while they were reading, during recess and as a break from learning!

Everyone at Clay is excited about the next challenge and encourages others to participate.
