Break Time at Hudson
- Jena Graham, Hudson Elementary School
- Physical Activity Participation, Student Leadership, Success with Funds, Teamwork
With this being our second year, our Ambassadors were highly motivated and excited about continuing what we started last year. They were also excited about the challenge ahead and about what they could do this school year. Being a part of the Fuel Up to Play 60 program has been amazing. We have seen such leadership from our Ambassadors and complete excitement and support from the rest of our school. They have felt proud and accomplished much success this year. They were eager to implement a new play this year and really wanted to focus on getting kids moving. They picked the In-class Physical Activity Breaks. They used our grant money to buy equipment that could be checked out by all teachers in our building. They then put together a shared document for google drive, where teachers could easily check out the equipment. They inventoried their equipment and then went around to each classroom to demonstrate the proper use of all equipment. The Ambassadors loved getting into the classrooms and the other students seemed more excited about the equipment because of it. They have also made posters and announcements to promote their play. Being able to walk through the hallways and see students and teachers take those in-class breaks, made our Ambassadors feel proud. It has only given them more motivation and they have already started talking about what equipment they want to add and what they plan to do next.
