ELC Receives Public Education Foundation Grant

The Early Learning Center recently received a grant from the Sheboygan Public Education Foundation for nearly $2,500. Seven new tricycles and a large mat system were purchased to help improve children's cardio vascular, coordination and balance components of physical development.

The grant was put together by ELC teachers, Chris Campe, Colleen Pyne, Becky Reinke and written by volunteer physical education instructor, Kris Fritz.

To assist with the expenses, additional money was taken from the DPI "Movin' & Munchin' Schools Program" grant that Fritz secured last school year.

By instilling physical fitness habits in young children there is a greater chance of instilling healthy habits and fighting obesity.
