Two more Winona schools have joined a program to bring the sport of cross country skiing to elementary students in both Winona and La Crosse.
The program is co-sponsored by Dahl Subaru, Live Well Winona, and the Central Cross Country Ski Association, and will bring the sport to St. Stanislaus and W-K elementary schools in Winona along with Longfellow Elementary in La Crosse. Last winter the program started at Jefferson, Bluffview Montessori and Ridgeway Community School in the Winona school district.
It's called "Nordic Rocks" And it introduces children in kindergarten through the sixth grade to the sport of cross country skiing. It also gives students an opportunity to experience Nordic skiing during the school day, with their teachers and classmates.
Andrew Dahl, president of Dahl Subaru, said his firm is excited to bring the program to the new schools to promote a healthy lifestyle outdoors during the winter for the youth of the area.....
