McDougle Elementary enters healthy school makeover contest
McDougle Elementary School recently entered into the 2012 healthy school makeover contest with the intention of improving its physical education curriculum and promoting a healthy lifestyle for the community.
According to a press release, the school is competing for $45,000, which it would use to build a walking track.
"A paved walking track would be one more piece in our quest to have healthier students here at McDougle," Lynn Brown, principal of McDougle Elementary, said in the release. "In the afternoons, evenings and weekends, several students and families walk around the perimeter of the campus, which is currently a rocky, open field. It would be wonderful to have a good, weather-proof surface not only for our school community to use, but to support our P.E. department activities and programs."

Individuals can vote for McDougle Elementary daily through Wednesday, Nov. 14.
Judging will be held Nov. 14 through Monday, Dec. 10. Winners will be announced Dec. 10.
McDougle Elementary has made numerous efforts to promote a healthy way of life for its students and the community, including building a garden and soccer goals on campus, as well as expanding the district's Breakfast in the Classroom program.
