PRB High School gets Health4Life mini grant


This spring Pine River-Backus High School was awarded a Health4Life school mini grant to help increase physical activity opportunities for students.

Equipment such as footballs, basketballs and frisbees were purchased and used daily during the lunch break.

“I haven’t seen this much movement at high school recess in a long time. We are thankful for this grant,” said Principal Trent Langemo.
