Bulldog Blast
On February 21st, a great event happened at BCEMS! We had a local farmer Mr. Neddo, Jill from New England Dairy Council and our FUTP 60 team come together for taste testing and physical activities.  Mr. Needo with the help of Jill and student Taiden gave out Green Berry Smoothies to guess the hidden ingredient and opportunity to answer trivia questions. Then you had choices of getting activities such as the GAGA Pit (purchased with FUTP 60 grant, obstacle course, Ken ball, ping pong, board games, and many other activities.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Our School Ambassador worked closely with the FUTP 60 team and our middle school PE teacher to come up with a plan for the morning for 5th-8th grade students to participate in educational, fun physical activities. They meet weekly and Brianna took the lead with the student and adult team.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

This activities has gone through many changes over the years and this year was great success! This will be come an annual event for middle school students. BULLDOG BLAST!

How did you accomplish your goals?

The team accomplished their goals of bringing fun, introducing different physical activities and tied in a healthy taste testing event with the New England Dairy Council. We also had support from our food service director and chef to come up with the Green Berry Smoothie, which will be part of our regular menu due to the taste test results. Bringing adults, students and community agencies was our goal and met our grant objectives.
