Families coming out to support physical activity

Our elementary school used Fuel Up to Play 60 Funds to Ramp Up our Recess! We had a Kickoff family recess night and a 5K Fun Run to Kickoff. What a fun time! Then our funds allowed us to purchase signs to help the students know what's going on at the playground each week. We improved our lap program management with the addition of barcodes and scanners that make record keeping and incentives a snap!

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

The lap program has grown over the year since the September Kickoff. Students are already hoping to top their miles next year! Parents are becoming aware of their children's progress and helping with management of the program too! Fuel Up to Play 60 is AWESOME!

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Keeping kids involved in activity has reduced playground problems. Busy kids are happy kids!
