CORTON-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. -- Pierre Van Cortlandt Middle School’s eighth-grade students recently shared tips about fitness, nutrition and related subjects, including self-esteem and stress, when they visited Carrie E. Tompkins Elementary School’s physical education classes in Croton-on-Hudson

“We are teaching fourth-graders about fitness and how it’s important to have healthy habits,” said eighth-grade student Elan Roth.

Roth and his classmates taught the younger students skills that ranged from how to do a proper push-up, how to stretch their muscles before and after physical activity to how to make healthy food choices.

A group of eighth-graders commented that the younger students’ enthusiasm made the lessons especially fun.

“They are really excited about learning and excited to be going to middle school next year,” Roth said.
