Marcy on the Move Ends with Olympic-Style Closing Ceremony

students running This year’s Marcy on the Move program came to an end with a final cross country race and an Olympic-style closing ceremony on May 22. This was the third year of the fitness program, which is an opportunity for students in grades 3-5 to be active, learn how to make healthy lifestyle choices, and develop strong character.

Each student participating in the program was assigned to a team representing one of six countries: Canada, England, Germany, Ireland, Italy and Sweden. The students had the opportunity to compete in different types of athletic events, including a cross country race in the final session.

During the closing ceremony, individual students were recognized for their achievements and they received certificates for the events that they won. Finally, points were added up and the team results were announced, with Ireland being the overall winner.

The team results were:

- Ireland: 60 points

- Italy: 57 points

- Germany: 56 points

students get awards - England: 55 points

- Sweden: 47 points

- Canada: 39 points

All of the participating students were given a Whitesboro tote bag filled with healthy goodies, and then ice cream was served.

Congratulations on a successful program to everyone who participated in Marcy on the Move, and thank you to all of the volunteers who helped out!
