	Ben Franklin Elementary School Kicked Off with a Community Tailgate Party
Our Fuel Up to Play 60 Team had a very busy week. We started by visiting Rutgers University's Cook Campus Farm. At the farm, our team members got a chance to learn about the animals, ask questions about the farm and its mission, and also feed some of the dairy cows. Two days after our farm visit, we had our first Community Tailgate Party. We were able to bring together families of our community for a night full of good food and fun games. Afterwards, we showed a strong sign of support by attending our high school's football game.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Our parents and students came together to create our tailgate party. Parents and students worked together to decorate their cars with their team colors and showed off their cooking skills by providing snacks for everyone to taste. They displayed their abilities out on the playground by participating in several physical activities.
