On Saturday April 28 families at LFPA came together for a morning of fitness and nutrition.  The morning began with a karate exhibition from US Taekwondo Academy and then students listened to the story Growing Vegetable Soup read by members of Raising A Reader.  While parents learned about reading to their students and interacting with the story, students planted tomato, carrot, or green bean seeds.  The day ended with some Zumba and a raffle.  We want families to realize the importance of exercise and healthy food in their everyday lives.
