Kenosha School Receives $100,000 Grant for Fitness Center and Equipment
Kenosha Unified School District announced that Washington Middle School has been chosen as one of three Wisconsin schools to be awarded the $100,000 Wisconsin Fitness Center Grant by the National Foundation for Governors’ Fitness Councils, according to a release from the district. This grant will cover the cost of fitness equipment, room design, delivery and installation.
Washington Principal Curtiss Tolefree said, “providing access for students to exercise with up-to-date equipment while at school is an opportunity that many students do not have outside of the school day. Through this grant, students at Washington will learn about the benefits of fitness in their lives and be able to practice routines that will enable them to make positive decisions to achieve and maintain total health and wellness.”
Work will begin on the new fitness center in August 2016 with the intent to complete the project by the end of September.
