When you are All In, you find that you can tie activity into anything! Our Student Ambassadors recently created an obstacle course for our Family Literacy Night which was a celebration for the completion of our One School, One Book - "The Wild Robot".

How did students and adults work together as a team?

We met with Student Ambassadors to plan the activities and created a supply list. Students used creativity to tie each activity in the obstacle course to the book, "The Wild Robot". Obstacles included the one-footed hop, scooter races, a boulder climb, a build a nest station, and a dance like a robot station. Families had a great time and our Student Ambassadors did a fantastic job running each station!

How did you accomplish your goals?

We are lucky to have great community involvement at our school. Both staff and families are very supportive of FUTP 60. We got the community involved in our obstacle course and had the opportunity to spread the word about FUTP 60. It's such a great program that has already had such a positive impact in our school!
