Cumberland Trace Elementary has made great strides in improving school health and wellness. The Coordinated School Health Committee’s focus is to encourage students and staff to live healthy and active lifestyles. Fuel Up to Play 60 has been a key player this year in helping us to reach our overall goal. 

Farm to School has been an awesome program. The 5th grade students started learning in 4th grade the process of growing corn when a local farmer came to their classroom to teach them. In the fall of 2015, students were able to take a field trip to the farm and pick corn. Once the corn was prepared the students were able to enjoy it, as it was served in our dining room. This was a great opportunity for our students. “Ramp Up for Recess” has also provided students with more equipment to use during recess to play more team activities. 

CTE is a Bronze Healthy School through the Alliance for a Healthier Generation and is involved in many other programs, such as walk/bike to school day, GoNoodle, in-class activity breaks, school garden, activity monitors, Track Tigers, running club, and so much more. Fuel Up to Play 60 has been a great asset for improving our school environment. Thanks so much Fuel Up to Play 60 for making a difference in many students' lives!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

CTE has a student health committee as well as a Coordinated School Health Committee. Students and adults work together to develop ideas that are going to encourage our school to live healthy and active lifestyles.

How did you accomplish your goals?

CTE has been able to accomplish our goals by having a great support staff. Our district food service manager has been very beneficial, and we have also had support from several parents and administration.
