MONROE - With new water fountains made for filling reusable bottles, fitness equipment, ropes activities and "ga-ga pits," the second year of the Physical Education Program grant is in full swing in the Monroe school district. "We had a great year so far," said John Ditter, the district's PEP grant manager and a physical education teacher at Monroe High School. He updated the board Monday on the grant, showing videos of the fitness activities, including ropes courses, and photos of students constructing the pits used for Ga-ga Ball, a game that keeps the players moving.
