On Thursday, March 9, 2017, Sam Crenshaw and his cameraman from the City of Atlanta's Channel 26, came to Benteen in search of some action in Ms. Nicole Hayden's physical education class. And some action they did find. Ms. Hayden has introduced lacrosse to her students. It is her goal to introduce the diverse population, at Benteen, to the non-traditional sports. Ms. Hayden said, "Elementary physical education creates a foundation for skill building that should matriculate through middle school, and be applied in high school physical education." And she went on to say, "Research tells us that physical education has a direct correlation to academic achievement." Mr. Crenshaw was able to actually see the students in the midst of their throwing and catching drills. Impressed, would probably be the description of the students and their performance.
