Play 60 Fun Mile Walk/Run

Normally, we aren't allowed to run in the hallways. That changed on Thursday, October 20. On that day, students and family members met for our first ever mile walk and run. We began after school by writing our names on raffle tickets. Then, after everyone arrived, the run began. We walked and ran eight laps around our school, stopping for drinks of water along the way. Once we finished, the raffle began, and people received medals, footballs, bags, and more! Someone person even got a signed Bears flag! Finally, every participant lined up in front of a giant Fuel Up To Play 60 poster for a picture. This was a great start to our Fuel Up To Play 60 Season.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Watching the student ambassadors asking the principals for approval was such an rewarding experience.
