Colorful Playground
Last year the Fuel Up to Play 60 team decided to revamp our mundane CATCH time. They wanted our structured time to be a little more fun and engaging. They created themed days which are Mile Monday, Tag Tuesday, Workout Wednesday, Teamwork Thursday, and Fitness Friday. With PTA help, we decided to add a little bit of variation to our playground this year. PTA purchased stencils for our black top!! Fuel Up to Play 60 students came up on two different Saturdays to paint agility ladders and targets on the ground. The students love the new colorful additions to our playground. Not only are they being moderate to vigorously active, they get to work on their math skills while playing on the targets.

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

We met up with PTA and FUTP 60 on two different Saturdays and still have so much to add to our black top!! Thanks to the PTA, we have so many more stencils to add and keep our playground fresh. We will continue to set dates to add more to our black top.
