Even during the winter months, Smithtown Elementary School physical education teacher Kurt Margraf knows how to get students to stay active. As part of his weekly before school sports program, Margraf is teaching his students about the Iditarod sled dog race. The two-week race takes place annually each March in Alaska. Fourth-graders were taught facts about the race, and necessary clothes they need to wear before trying to mimic the race by pulling one another on sleds.
