Healthy Choices Day

By J. Jenson

Healthy Choices Day was February 27, 2020 this year. The event is offered during a different season each year. Winter activities were presented for students to choose from, like skiing at Blacktail, snowing shoeing, cross country skiing and hiking. Other choices included the Flying Squirrel in Missoula, The Hub, bowling, swimming, painting pottery, cooking, and even learning winter survival skills.

Healthy Choices Day is organized by school  counselors, Mrs. Hinman and Ms. Fewlass, as well as the teachers planning their event. The purpose of Healthy Choices Day is to show Polson Middle Schoolers that there are healthier options, rather than smoking and doing drugs.
