    The meeting of the Nelson County School Board Tuesday kicked off with a few jumping jacks.

    Second- and third-grade students from Cox’s Creek Elementary School, with the help of Principal Jan Lanham and school board members, demonstrated how to practice math through movement. Together they did 20 + 10 jumping jacks and 20 + 2 kicks.
