During each one of our grade level lunches, our student FUTP 60 committee worked on a flash mob song. After all the students were seated for lunch, we started the music for the song and the kids rose from their seats and walked onto the stage to finish the song,. The song was created with the assistance of our guidance counselor and a few our of FUTP 60 students. These students then introduced the song to the group. The song was an encouragement to be physically active and to choose fruits and vegetables at lunch.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Four of our students worked with our guidance counselor to write the song we used for the Flash mob.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Our students worked as a team to help present the Flash mob for all of the grade level lunches. The 5th and 6th graders assisted with the 4th grade lunch Flash mob, as there are only five students in our FUTP 60 committee in fourth grade.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Our student committee grew in numbers from 25-30 students to 55-60.
