Last March 25, our Bancroft and Thomson students had the opportunity to participate in the national Subway PEP rally (P-Play more, E-Eat right, P-Push away the screen). The students enjoyed meeting and playing with kids from other DC schools, totaling almost 300 participants. They engaged in the different games and sports such as basketball and soccer.
The kids also had the opportunity to meet Ms. Laila Ali (daughter of Mohammad Ali) and be coached by Tab Ramos the Olympic Soccer Champion.
They also enjoyed personally meeting Jared Fogle the Subway spokesman. The celebrities creatively encouraged the students to be physically active and eat healthy food even in their young age.
