Driscoll students were treated to a day of fitness activities and information on Friday, November 16th. We had visitors from the USAF, US Navy, YMCA, CrossFit, Soccer trainers and a coach from the SA Scorpions, Trinity volleyball coaches, and even the Ballapeno from the SA Missions made an appearance.

Students enjoyed activities ranging from soccer drills, Navy divers fitness, flag football, Zumba, yoga, and basketball. Nutrition information was also covered in classrooms and we even broke out the Xbox Kinetic and had a dance off in the MPR. It was great fun and thanks to all the teachers, guests speakers and performers that showed up and made this day a huge success, especially our Administrators!
