Deerfield Walking Club with Mrs. D

Our school nurse, Mrs. DeAngelis, is restarting the morning walking club for students. The club is opened to students in grades 3, 4, and 5. It will meet every Monday and Friday morning from 7:30am – 8:00am...rain or shine! The club will meet in the Deerfield lobby. 


The Deerfield Walking Club will be starting on Monday September 21, 2015 and ending on Friday October 30, 2015. Please send an email to tdeangelis@westwood.k12.ma.us  or call the health office to reserve a spot: 781-326-7500, ext. 8202 


Let’s get fit and learn a little about health and wellness along the way.
