One Tri-State school is promoting fitness for its students and providing them a fun activity at the same time. Perry Heights Middle School hosted a poker walk today. Homeroom teams walked around the school and received poker cards every time they passed a designated dealer. Once all the cards were handed out, the teams with the best poker hands won.
School officials created the event to get the students mobile, since the majority of them ride buses to school every day.
"That's pretty important to keep us a little healthy and everything," said 8th grader Draven Hawkins, "and make sure we're always ready for what's happening."
Each grade level winner earned free time during homeroom and will be able to spend that time outdoors.
