On October 4th, the students and staff at DeSoto Intermediate School participated in the statewide initiative called The Healthiest State Walk. This 1K walk brings an added focus to making healthy choices in our everyday lives. During the walk, participants stopped at stations to meet challenges that were posted along the road. Stations included jumping jacks, walking backwards & naming healthy foods. The goal is to promote a healthy life style through this walk.

A big thank you to the city of DeSoto for partitioning off streets to allow our 550 staff and students to “overtake” some city streets.
