Healthy habits paid off in more ways than one for the 16 second graders in Dara Watkins’ class at Boston Valley Elementary School who attended a fitness party with the Buffalo Bills in December. The invitation resulted from the students’ participation in the Fitness for Kids Play 60 Challenge, which motivated them to do at least 60 minutes of physical activity each day. During October, the students tracked their activity indoors and outdoors at school and home. In November, the goal was to eat at least five fruits and vegetables per day. Ten classrooms out of 350 region-wide that participated in the challenge were selected to attend the fitness party in the training center at Ralph Wilson Stadium, which featured physical activities and a healthy eating game show.
A team of 21 from Hamburg Central Schools took a dip in the cold water of Lake Erie at Woodlawn Beach State Park in December as participants in the Buffalo Polar Plunge, raising more than $3,500 for Special Olympics. The total will send seven individuals to Special Olympics, an athletic competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. In conjunction with this event, the Hamburg Central PTSA coordinated a “Change for Champions” drive to collect loose change in the schools the week prior to the plunge. The district won the “Cool School” award for being the top fund raising school entity.
Bulldogs’ head varsity football coach Patrick Cauley was honored on field before a Buffalo Bills game in December as a recipient of the Buffalo Bills/New York National Guard High School Coach of the Week award. The award recognized the team’s win over Williamsville South in October. The honor came with a $1,000 grant to be used toward athletics. This is the second time that Mr. Cauley has received the award. Additionally, Mr. Cauley learned earlier this month that he was nominated by the WNY Football Coaches Association and WNY Officials Board as one of 10 finalists for Section VI Coach of the Year.
