Cocopah's Fuel Up "Super" Spirit Week

Cocopah and the Super Bowl are celebrating their 50th anniversary by partnering with student council, our parent group, cafeteria staff, and Island Oasis to host our Super Spirit Week. Students dressed in theme attire each day, special café items were available for breakfast and lunch, collected Coins for Cocopah for Team MoJo during first period all week, and made cards & banners for Mo and Jo. In addition, on Monday we hosted a smoothie taste test (Coco-bana/ stra-bana, Mustang-o, and the mix-up mash-up Stra-ngo/MoJo) for students to sample. On Thursday, students exercised on the hour video clip from Fuel Up Club members and also participated in a tailgate / BBQ lunch. On Friday, students were issued a Team MoJo fan sticker and wristband. Students participated in our First Super Bowl Strut for Team MoJo. Students strutted around the quad (enough laps to make it to Santa Clara). Funds raised were donated to two special staff members (Mo- survivor of a hit and run accident in October & Jo battling pleural mesothelioma). Coins for Cocopah raised over $4,400 in change!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students and adults worked together by participating and volunteering to help with the following: dressed in the spirit of the day, smoothie taste test, tailgate lunch, donated, collected, counted coins, made cards and banners compiled in a keepsake binder for our special staff members (Team MoJo), participating in the Super Bowl Strut (enough laps to get to Santa Clara), and facilitating the events. Communication via posters, flyers, emails, morning announcements, social media.

How did you accomplish your goals?

We were very pleased with the overall participation with each of the day's events. We were thrilled with the amount of letters and cards compiled in the keepsake binder for our guests of honor. We were excited that our students could show how much they cared and supported the two staff members. We wanted our students to know that everyone can do something to help and to show that they care. Collectively, Coins for Cocopah collected over $4,400.
