Colleen Quinn-Maxwell and Deborah Lawlor, both Health and Physical Education teachers at Lower Moreland High School, were featured on Fox29 news for the new initiatives that the Health and PE department were able to fund through grants. These initiatives include:
- Stand-Up Paddle Boards which are used during the swimming unit,
- Heart rate monitors;
- Flexible classroom seating in the Health Classroom; and
- Sunscreen dispensers which are installed near the High School and Murray Avenue fields so students can practice sun safety.
Grant funds from the District mini-grants, The Foundation for Lower Moreland Schools, the Parent-Teacher Association, and the Richard David Kann Melanoma Foundation helped to make these efforts a reality. Fox29 reporter, Bob Kelly, interviewed students and Mrs. Quinn-Maxwell and Mrs. Lawlor.
