- Community Involvement, Student Leadership, Teamwork
Once a month, Fuel Up to Play 60 Team Members plan and prepare mini-lessons to 65 children at the after-care program at a local elementary school. Students research nutrition information to teach children about Choose My Plate, apples, vegetables, dairy and other healthy food choices. The middle school leaders incorporate physical activity into their mini-lessons to also promote the importance of 60 minutes of exercise each day.
