Hunt Elementary becomes Sioux City's first school to go blue


Sioux City continues to turn blue with another first in the effort to become a Blue Zones Worksite.

A ribbon cutting was held on Friday at Sioux City's Hunt Elementary. The school is Sioux City's first school to be designated a Blue Zones Worksite.

To get healthy, students and employees are encouraged to participate in "workout Wednesdays" and group walks. One class is also learning about healthy snack habits by planting a fruit and vegetable garden.

"We have over 25 schools in our district, but there's only one that we're visiting today," said Dr. Paul Gausman, superintendent of the Sioux City School District. "Out of all of those students, out of all of those schools, because there's only one that has been the first Blue Zones School and I'm here to give you this certificate."

Hunt is the first, but the "Blue Zones Project" needs a total of six Sioux City schools to sign on to reach their goal.
