Fuel Up Friday
At the Reeds Spring Middle School, we designate a Friday each month to promote physical activity. We begin in the morning with a dance in the gym. All students and teachers are encouraged to participate. At lunch, we continue with various physical activity challenges (longest plank, push ups, basketball shot contest). We also end our lunch with another student dance. We encourage teachers to participate and lead brain breaks throughout the day as well. Our student media group promotes our activities on our daily announcements.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Our student leadership team helps to select popular music for the dances as well as helping select the physical activity challenges.

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

We began the year by designating a Fuel Up Friday for each month. Student media promotes ahead of time and we encourage teachers to participate in faculty meetings as well as share new brain break ideas.
