Students at Thomas Jefferson received a grant through Donor’s Choose and Target this summer for new Fitbits to use. Advisor Kimberly Bogart started a walking club for the fourth and fifth grade students. The students walk during their lunch hour. 4th grade participates on Tuesdays and 5th grade participates on Thursdays. So far, the students have logged 200,000 steps and are striving to get 30 minutes of physical activity every time they walk.
