The Health Fair was hosted by Morris Knolls on March 23, 2017. It is an annual event to keep students informed about health issues. There were tables set up around the perimeter of the gym, each representing a different health idea or club. “There are a wide variety of different people that are connected to the health situation. The health fair is a great opportunity to showcase different health topics.” as Coach Reagan, gym teacher at Morris knolls said. As soon as people walked through the doors, they were greeted by the Denville police, who had set up an obstacle course that simulated drunk driving. Kids had to wear goggles that impaired their sight, push around a shopping cart, and avoid obstacles.

When asked about her thoughts on the Health Fair, sophomore Cassidy Kohler replied, “The Health Fair was really fun! Maybe for next year they can make it two days so everyone can go during their gym blocks and see the booths.”
Students went during their gym block to participate in the various activities that were set up and listen to many different presenters. Mrs. Rock, guidance counselor and advisor for the Interact club said, “I think there’s a lot of really relevant and important topics that are covered at the Health Fair.
