Saints-Gatorade Jr Training Camp Returns

The New Orleans Saints, in conjunction with Gatorade, the sports drink, sponsored its second junior training camp on our campus, Wednesday, January 28th. Students in grades 3-8, who followed the 4Ps during the second quarter, (they were prompt, polite, prepared, and productive) were allowed to participate. The Responsibility Tracker was used to keep track of students with an average of 90 points or better for the quarter.

The Saints visit is in conjunction with the NFL’s Play 60 campaign geared to encourage kids to be active for 60 minutes each day. Our front yard became “training camp” for the 200 kids taking part in the activity. It is the goal of Play 60 to reverse the trend of

childhood obesity currently plaguing the USA.

Our scholar athletes were also encouraged to stay away from tobacco products and to do their best in school. Thanks to Mrs. K. LeBlanc for securing this activity again for our Warriors.
