Edison Elementary stresses importance of physical fitness

Physical fitness is a top priority at Edison Elementary.

"With the financial cuts, a lot of time in elementary school physical education is one of the things that get cut back on because it's not mandated," Edison Elementary principal David Hermes said.

But not at Edison.

"With childhood obesity and diabetes, getting kids physically active is very important," Hermes said. "Most of the time you have kids inside playing video games and it's very seldom that you see them out playing."

Edison Elementary is trying to change that with a Family Fitness Challenge.
