Lombard students get active with kite flying
Jun 1, 2015 5:48 PM - Nearly 500 students ran around outside Madison Elementary School in Lombard Monday, flying handmade kites with classmates and getting some exercise with help from the Healthy Lombard Foundation. "It was awesome," said Tony Melton, a technology coach at the school. The new Kite Day event was the idea of a teacher at the school, who decided it would be a fun end of the year activity. Like other Healthy Lombard events, it started with some exercises, including jumping jacks, jogging in place and toe touches.
