Paragould School District hosts Ram Run

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - A group of kids took a break from the classroom to get some exercise on Wednesday.

The 2015 annual Ram Run took place on the Paragould High School track.

Kindergarten through fourth grade students walked around the track for 20 minutes and then had some fun playing outdoor games and enjoying the great weather.

Tori Thompson, public relations director for the Paragould School District, said it is important for the children to have both healthy minds and healthy bodies.

"Healthy students perform better in the classroom and as a school district we really promote health and wellness," Thompson said. "We think it's very important for our students to learn that you can live healthy and still have fun."

This is the ninth year Paragould School District has hosted the Ram Run.
