Faculty Fitness Frenzy

The Faculty Fitness Frenzy is an annual spring challenge that Nurse Ashley organizes. Nurse Ashley challenges the Gibbon Public Schools staff to be more active. She asks staff to plan physical activity for a 3 week period and record their minutes. The top two staff members with the highest totals are recognized. The mission of the activity is to help push staff to be more active and build better activity habits.
Congratulations to Marlene Ronnfeldt and Robyn Weismann our 2018 Faculty Fitness Frenzy winners! Marlene ended the 3 week challenge with 2,300 minutes and Robyn was close behind with 2,245 minutes of activity. These ladies received a $25 gift card from Sports Village from Nurse Ashley.
