The children from Cochranton Head Start visited the Meadville Area Recreation Complex on February 20 as part of a Health & Wellness focus. They were able to ice skate with the help of many volunteers and special walkers to assist them. After lunch, the children changed into swimsuits and dove on into the pool for lots of fun. YWCA Twin Creeks Head Start has implemented "I am Moving, I am Learning" into the classrooms to help children become more active. Head Start also provides monthly nutrition activities that the children participate in to prepare their own healthy breakfast, lunch or snack. Their daily breakfast and lunch is a wonderful time to talk about nutrition and healthy choices. Cochranton Parent Committee is busy planning the end-of-the-year field trip to Roche Park and the end-of-the-year family picnic and treasure hunt. Regina Pastrano, member of the Parent Committee, also recently planned and held a very successful Scholastic Book Fair.
