The physical education department was awarded a grant from the Illinois Association of Health Physical Education Recreation and Dance for $4,000.

Mr. Bob Peck was the responsible for the grant and what should it be spent on.

“This grant was to invest new work out equipment to help of making better athletes and help students with their fitness life,” Mr. Peck said.

The equipment purchased included kettlebells, medicine balls and ploy boxes. Those items should always stay in the weight room so we do not lose any of them.

“Keeping the equipment in the weight room is always our #1 concern,” Mr. Peck said.

The Illinois Association of Health Physical Education Recreation and Dance gave Richards this amount of money to make things better. The school would look bad if we do not take care of it and try to actually work for the best. Other thing is we should take care of it or do not touch it because their other students want to use it for the better for themselves, Mr. Peck said.

“Please handle everything with care and always put things back to the best of your ability. This helps keep our classroom safe and clean for the classes that use it” said Mr. Peck
