Wheatley Wildcats Put Stress on the Ropes


Wheatley Elementary School teachers put their boxing skills to the test last Wednesday during a special staff workout class. Wheatley counselor Ritchie Cherry led a “Box-Out” class and donated several pairs of gloves and pads from his professional boxing career.

Cherry led over 15 teachers in basic boxing and exercise drills. Cherry said the goal of the event is to provide teachers with a new and exciting way to relieve stress and have fun.

“It was a wonderful event that provided immediate results by helping teachers relieve a lot of their daily stress,” Cherry said.

Cherry plans to hold more classes for Wheatley teachers in the future.
