On April 5, Cristo Rey students and faculty participated in their annual, all-day Health Day. I was honored to attend Health Day, and watch how the school promoted physical and emotional health through Zumba, meditation, yoga, and discussion groups. Cristo Rey’s Facebook page said Health Day covered healthy lifestyle topics from A, for an apple a day, to Z for Zumba. Students rotated from active participation sessions to discussion topics centered around maintaining health. Please enjoy the slideshow above to see the positive instruction in all varieties of health.
