Bissonet Plaza’s Bollywood Family Fitness Day

In late October, family members joined students at Bissonet Plaza Elementary for a Bollywood-themed Family Fitness Day.

According to Principal Brenda Breithaupt, a committee of teachers works on programs to involve the families and the community in the school.

“There are seven different languages spoken by families at our school,” Breithaupt said. “We select activities to fit one of the cultures, and this year we selected India.”

Participation in the Family Fitness Day program was very high this year, with 50 percent of family members in attendance at one of two sessions. Students and their families participated in a traditional dance during a PE class, and afterward, celebrated with refreshments.

“Our students are proud of what they have accomplished,” she said. “They are very happy when their parents come to see them.”
