Students at St. Francis of Assisi Elementary School in Manitowoc, WI capped off a week filled with healthful announcements and posters encouraging students to try new foods with awarding stickers in the cafeteria. 4th grade FUTP 60 team researched interesting and ear catching facts about fruits and vegetables and volunteered to read them on the morning announcements all week long! Students from the team also created colorful and fact filled posters that were hung throughout the school to remind students to try new foods all week long. Our 4th grade Fuel Up to Play 60 team came to the cafeteria during lunch time and rewarded each student with a sticker that stated, "I tried something new today" as an incentive for everyone fulfilling their goal. It was awesome to see so many students committing to trying something new to help their bodies be healthy!
