Fitness rooms' grand opening is May 22

May 13, 2014

Haywood County Schools will hold a grand opening for school fitness rooms at Tuscola High School, Bethel Middle School, Canton Middle School and Waynesville Middle School from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Thursday, May 22, at Tuscola. A similar ceremony was held in March of 2013 to celebrate the grand opening of new fitness rooms at Pisgah High School and Central Haywood High School.

“We were really pleased to receive this grant almost three years ago," said Bill Nolte, associate superintendent of Haywood County Schools. "Some folks mistakenly think the grant is for athletics or staff wellness.  While those are important, this grant is for students in our physical education classes.”

The fitness rooms are part of a three-year Carol M. White PEP (Physical Education Program) Grant that focuses on improving student health and fitness through physical education classes.
