Ashburn Community Elementary School student art work

This artwork comes from an Ashburn Community Elementary School student.

Not only is yoga fun, but it is also an excellent way to “cool down” your class. Teachers in HSC’s Fit to Learn program have also seen the benefits of incorporating yoga in the classroom as it helps students get focused and ready to learn. Yoga is also good for your heart!

Ashburn Community Elementary School was one of 37 schools recognized for meeting the high standards of the HealthierUS School Challenge. Ashburn received the Silver Award.

Kudos! Stay posted for more student art from this celebration!
