Plunge into Fitness 2018

Beginning today, all Spring Brook students will once again have the opportunity to participate in the Plunge into Fitness Program sponsored by Raging Waves in Yorkville. Students who complete 25 hours of exercise (any exercise that increases their heart rate) and return their completed fitness logs back to school by Tuesday, April 10, will receive a free June Raging Waves admission pass (May 26 - June 30) OR can get $10.00 off admission during the rest of the season (July 1 - September 3). Due to deadlines set by Raging Waves, no late fitness logs can be accepted after Thursday, April 10. Students who successfully complete the program will receive their vouchers in early May.
