Timber Wellness Expo

Health and wellness expos are a great way to share information with students, staff, families and the community about healthy eating, physical activity and other health and wellness resources.

Timber Trail Elementary (TTE) hosted its first Timbers Wellness Expo emphasizing whole body and mental wellness. The expo was designed to be both interactive and informative for guests while promoting the improvement of health, fitness and overall wellbeing. “Our Castle Pines community is rapidly expanding with families from outside of the area and state. We often see posts on the Castle Pines social media groups asking for recommendations for activities for school age children,” said Aimee Valuk, co-chair of community events for TTE PTO.

The expo highlighted many businesses from the surrounding communities that provide mental, physical or social wellness opportunities to our families and students. Twenty eight vendors all brought their sports and nutrition expertise to the expo. Participants had several opportunities to take part in a number of demonstrations and activities. Speedtown encouraged guests to participate in speed training activities while Mathnasium had students playing math games with dice. The numbers opposite the dice face always equals seven. Students rolled and had to add the numbers on the bottom of the dice knowing it was whatever number helped the face equal seven.

The PTO wanted to provide a fun, friendly and interactive way for families to come together and learn about these opportunities. “We really wanted a well-balanced array of organizations to bring our vision to life,” added Aimee. The expo was an opportunity to not only build relationships with local businesses and community organizations, but also provide ongoing support to TTE.
