DDE Sixth-Graders Learn How to GetLIVIN
Tuesday, April 4, 2017
The question was both simple and complex – “Are your ready to GetLIVIN?”
Donlin Drive Elementary sixth-graders recently were asked that very question when Liverpool High School graduate Joe O’Connor, the creator of the GetLIVIN Foundation, introduced them to “The GetLIVIN Way.”
The GetLIVIN Foundation provides programs for students centered on health & wellness, mindfulness, and personal development. Its mission is to redefine the way people live their best lives. O’Connor and a number of local young business professionals were invited to DDE to share their expertise with the students.
After a brief introduction by O’Connor, the DDE sixth-graders participated in both a 15-minute circuit style workout and a 15-minute yoga class. They then rotated through three unique workshops meant to inspire the students by helping them define their passions, believe in themselves and learn healthy eating habits
After the workshops, the DDE sixth-graders were treated to salads from North Syracuse’s CoreLife Eatery.
