Third-grader Jonathan Fisher was one lucky kid.

One day while shopping, Elizabeth Fisher thought to enter her son in a contest she spotted at her local Giant supermarket, the Mid-Atlantic Dairy Association’s “Take Jon Jansen to School” contest.

Fisher won the contest, earning Craik Elementary in Pomfret the chance to host Washington Redskins offensive tackle Jon Jansen at a school assembly.

On Friday, May 18th, Fisher met and introduced Jansen to Craik Elementary students and teachers during an assembly about the importance of nutrition and exercise. 

This wasn’t just a sit and listen kind of assembly. At one point, Jansen had students demonstrating push-ups and jumping jacks.   He spoke about how he prepares for game days by eating grains, fruits, vegetables and dairy products.

“It was great to talk to the Craik Elementary students about healthy eating.  I know how important it is for growing kids to learn healthy habits, like eating right and getting plenty of exercise, which will stick with them as they age,” Jansen said.
