Ms. Gervais' class completed more than 30 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity during the school day and an additional 30 minutes of extra time outside the classroom. The class was drawn as the June grand prize winner and will receive a set of practice jerseys and ball hockey equipment for their school and the chance to participate in Monday's ball hockey game with Sparty.

Media representatives are asked to sign in at the school office upon arrival.
