  • 1st Place

    Congratulations to our Point Higgins students for getting 1st Place in Tier 2 for the Fall 2020 Healthy Futures Challenge!  PHE students exercised for at least 60 minutes for 15 days in September, October, and November to earn this award.  PE and recess time counted, and students also tracked their physical activity outside of school, too.
