On October 5th, the students and staff at DeSoto Intermediate School participated in the statewide initiative called The Healthiest State Walk.  This 1K walk brought an added focus to making healthy choices to our daily conversations.  This is DeSoto Intermediate’s third year participating in the activity.
During the walk, participants stopped at stations to meet challenges that were posted along the roadway.  From doing a monster dance, walking backwards, to walking like a robot, all had a great time promoting a healthy lifestyle through this walk.
A thank you to the City of DeSoto for partitioning off streets to allow the over 500 staff and students “overtake” some city streets.
