We invited everyone to our Fuel Up to Play 60 Community Fitness Night - teachers, students, parents, vendors, administrators...everyone! Each floor of our three-story building was devoted to different types of physical activity. Parents and students had fun playing with each other as well as exercising with other adults. Everyone was pleased with the participation - not as many people showed up as we wanted, but we thought it was good for our first community night. That is definitely something we will be doing as an annual event. We enjoyed everyone coming together to get physically fit. Hopefully, the parents will continue to do this at home.
How did you accomplish your goals?
Everyone got involved in the planning. The students and I planned it out. The office helped by distributing invitations. The students and some teachers helped setting up the stations on each floor.
How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?
Sometimes when you're having fun, you forget it's for the better. We had such a good time, those who participated will look forward to doing it again. Those who didn't participate will be sorry for missing the fun and be sure to come join us the next time.
What improvements have you seen at your school?
Since we started Fuel Up to Play 60, I have seen more people concentrate on eating healthy, especially. More eat salads for lunch and things like that. Teachers are asking for something like a walking club. Everyone is focusing on being healthier.
