- Community Involvement
6th grade students were given an assignment on compassion where they had find a need in the community to see if they could help in any way. Those students approached the Fuel Up to Play 60 student committee about hosting a 3 on 3 basketball tournament before school to raise money for a local charity. The FUTP 60 committee took on the project. We created a small entry fee and sold fruit smoothies during the games. We had over 100 students participate in the tournament. We raised $150 dollars for the charity through this project while promoting physical activity and healthy eating.
