Project Fit

  • PFA
    (Above: Pulaski's new PFA fitness area.)
  •      Since 1980 childhood obesity has tripled according to the U.S. Surgeon Generals' Report. In answer to this alarming trend, Project Fit America (PFA), a nonprofit organization that donates fully funded fitness programs to schools, is going to be incorporated into the District's K-6 curriculum in the 2013-14 school year. PFA creates new opportunities for children to be active, fit and healthy as part of the everyday school experience.
  •    Programming includes state-of-the-art fitness equipment specifically designed to address the deficit areas where children fail fitness tests; indoor mobile fitness equipment; a dynamic curriculum with games and activities kids can play on the PFA outdoor & indoor equipment; and in class instruction on subjects such as smoking intervention and nutrition. PFA also provides support to the schools for two years with training on site.
         "We are excited to be chosen as the first district in the State of New York to receive this grant," said Nancy Carney, Superintendent of Schools. "The Riverhead Board of Education and our K-6 students, would like to thank Bill Groth our Athletic Director, along with his staff, PBMC Health, and the Suffolk County Lions Diabetes Education Foundation for working together to bring Project Fit America to our K-6 schools."

         Research shows that not only is physical education important for a child's physical development, it actually helps kids read and learn math. A healthy active child is a better learner," said Stacey Cook, PFA Executive Director."

The Pulaski Street School Library is named after PFC Garfield Langhorn, a 1967 graduate of RHS (the HS was then housed at the Pulaski Street School). PFC Langhorn was killed
in action in the Vietnam War, when, during a rescue mission, he threw himself on a live grenade to save
his fellow soldiers.

Langhorn was posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal
of Honor--the only Suffolk County recipient of that honor. >MORE
