Caring about their health...

"A wise man should consider that health is the greatest of human blessings..."

So wrote Henry David Thoreau, a 19th-century American writer and philosopher.

Hundreds of students at Schaghticoke Middle School in New Milford took a step in the direction of caring for their health April 11 by participating in their school's annual health fair in the school gymnasium.
