Our student team consists of six 4th graders and six 5th graders. The collaboration amongst the team members as a mentor was inspiring and uplifting to witness. Our student leadership team made a healthy choice bulletin board in the gym encouraging their peers to eat more vegetables and fruit within their diet. They also displayed options and ideas of different games to play outside doing recess. One other way the team came together was by making a short video for morning announcements. The team gave a show and tell of either their favorite fruit or vegetable while highlighting a fun and interesting fact about it. The message has been to Be Fit cheering on everybody to get out and play, Be Healthy motivating the school to eat at least one vegetable or fruit a day, and Be Happy by living life with more smiles and fun!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

They have allowed each member to express their ideas on how to promote a healthier lifestyle.
