Physical Activity Participation
This school year, Bartels Middle School completed a number of activities for Fuel Up to Play 60. In the beginning of the year we kicked off our FUTP 60 during our district homecoming week. Every day during homecoming week, we had students participate and compete in a football obstacle course. Students competed by grade and gender and were timed. At the end, the record times were awarded FUTP 60 t-shirts and bracelets. At the end of the week, students were introduced to FUTP 60, its purpose, and how to login. Two previous FUTP 60 ambassadors talked to new 6th grade students and recruited their peers. During FUTP 60 kick-off week, students made, distributed, and tasted a healthy snack, including apples and dip and were provided the recipe. Students also took pictures in front of the FUTP 60 campaign poster. During Friday homecoming week, there was a FUTP 60 float, which included students carrying posters and Green Bay Packer T-shirts. Students were also present at the homecoming football game and held posters, advocating their work with FUTP 60 and their previous ambassador experience. Our school administration took photos with the FUTP 60 representatives giving our PE and health department our grant check. The photos were shared on all of our school media sites, the middle school school newsletter, district newsletter, and our school website. FUTP 60 and Play 60 provided us with a signed football by Mason Crosby. In December, students competed in a physical education class during a work-out unit to win it. Students who completed so many sets and repetitions with their partner were entered into a drawing and one final student was drawn prior to winter break. Pictures of the winning student were provided for the school newsletter and social media websites.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

We have a very active 6th grade class that had established Student Ambassadors coming into our school. It has been great to see them lead activities and ask for opportunities for our school. Both they and their parents are very involved in helping provide many different opportunities for our school and students.
