SCOTCH PLAINS — Union Catholic High School participated in Health and Fitness Week during the week of Feb. 27- March 2, under the guidance of health and physical education teacher Joan Badala O’Donnell, who also teaches fitness classes at the Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA. She strongly believes that the key to a healthy lifestyle is a good diet and exercise and wanted to encourage that throughout the week. Events included a friendly volleyball tournament, free spinning class at the Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA, free Zumba class with a certified instructor, and the administering of the President’s Physical Fitness test. During the week, no fried foods or cookies were offered in the cafeteria and all food items had to be baked.
