The Gail Goletz ACES Walk will be held this Friday,May 20th at 11:25am.

Project ACES (All Children Exercise Simultaneously) was created by physical education teacher Len Saunders in 1989 as a method of motivating children to exercise. Nationally, ACES takes place on the first Wednesday in May as part of National Physical Fitness and Sports Month along with National Physical Education Week.  Since 1989, millions of children from all over the world exercise together on this day to promote proper health and fitness habits.  Gail Goletz brought this idea to Blythe Park with the annual ACES walk.  We choose a day in May (not necessarily the first Wednesday, but rather a day that works for the Blythe Park schedule) for all the students to participate in a one mile walk around the Blythe Park neighborhood during the lunch hour.  When Mrs. Goletz retired a couple of years ago, we decided to honor her legacy of promoting fitness among students by naming our walk the Gail Goletz ACES Walk.

Please come out and join the kids in the annual walk on Friday!
