Fuel Up to Play 60 Ambassadors and healthy eating

2015-2016 is Cloverdale's 1st year as a Fuel Up to Play 60 school. Since announcing that to the students in October 2015 I have seen a huge improvement in both physical activity as well as healthy eating. We had 2 Kickoffs, one for physical activity another for healthy eating. At our first Kickoff, we had Matty from z103 come and we had an hour-long dance party that both staff and students participated in. 90% of staff and students were physically active during this hour and were ready to start their daily physical activity. At our second Kickoff, we had Molly Moo come and visit Cloverdale and we introduced Cloverdale's first Fuel Up to Play 60 Ambassadors. We also kicked off with our healthy eating by drinking some smoothies with Molly Moo and the cowboys. CLOVERDALE COWBOYS! FUEL UP TO PLAY 60

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Everyone at Cloverdale is becoming healthy and active. Teachers are making better choices and therefore the students are making better choices. Students are being more active in the classrooms with brain breaks and the peddle bikes we received from the funding. We are working together as a Cloverdale team to become more healthy and active.
