Some of my classmates and I are fifth-grade West Babylon JFK Elementary School wellness ambassadors. What we do is try to make the school healthier, easier and more fun.

For example, from 2016 we had an idea of a teachers vs. fifth-grade students kickball game. At the first meeting of the school year, we brought it back again. It was successful. For 2017 there will be a teachers vs. fifth-graders kickball game.

We love making the school more fun and healthier. For gym we might bring back moutain bikes for the bike unit. It will be awesome. We think wellness ambassadors can make your school more fun.
